The Cockroach Hour: Multi-region Kubernetes database with Red Hat OpenShift, CockroachDB, and Submariner

Published Wednesday, Mar 24, 2021

Watch the webinar

In this hands-on session, we will walk through the deployment of CockroachDB on Red Hat OpenShift across three AWS regions. Running anything multi-cluster in Kubernetes presents a range of challenges and in this session, we will talk through a few of the major issues with security and networking.

We will walk through:

  • A reference architecture for a multi-cluster application
  • Deployment of CockroachDB using Red Hat OpenShift 
  • Multi-cluster secrets management using cert-manager and Vault
  • Using Submariner as the cross-domain networking solution

The combination of Red Hat OpenShift and CockroachDB is the easiest way to deploy an application across multiple regions/clusters as both are architected to scale easily and survive failures in this configuration.
