The Cockroach Hour: Kubernetes and Databases

Published June 11, 2020
Watch the webinar

The orchestration war is over (at least for now) but the battle to move all of our apps into Kubernetes has just begun. While K8S has been historically great for stateless apps and services, what about state and more importantly, the database?

Deploying a database on Kubernetes is painful at best and many just choose to run it the way we always have… as a single instance on a VM somewhere in the cloud.  Why not run it in the same infrastructure and gain the guarantees of uptime and scale that K8S delivers?

It is difficult, but maybe there is another way… of course!

In this discussion, we will talk through some of the challenges of:

  • Running a database in Kubernetes
  • Operators and databases, what and what
  • The problem with casual consistency in NoSQL 
  • Why federation data and not compute


The Cockroach Hour

A regular discussion with experts on key topics facing organizations as we all transition to a new digital norm. You bring the questions and we’ll provide experts and a lighthearted and hopefully valuable hour of discussion.

You're in Good Company
