K8s brings lots of desired features for the enterprise, however, migrations from static virtual machines bring lots of new challenges. At Dell, within the Dell-ISG business unit, supporting over 11K+ engineers daily, across the various product types (SaaS, on-prem software, and embedded  Continue Reading »

Smart Cities data infrastructure in a cloud-native containerized environment

Written on January 20, 2022 at 7:28 AM, by

Smart Cities represent complex and challenging environments that generate an overwhelming amount of data to ingest, transfer, prepare and store. In this presentation – which is based on a fictitious but potential real world scenario in the city of London – we will see how you can leverage different data engineering patterns to create a  Continue Reading »

Machine learning on Kubernetes with Metaflow

Written on January 14, 2022 at 6:26 AM, by

Metaflow is an open source machine learning platform, originally built and broadly battle-tested at Netflix to help with ML, analytics, and other data-intensive use cases. It was initially built to heavily rely on AWS, but it’s been rebuilt to run large-scale data crunching workloads on Kubernetes. In this talk, Oleg shares the surprises and challenges  Continue Reading »

Application Level Data Operations on Kubernetes

Written on December 16, 2021 at 7:16 AM, by

For stateful, cloud-native applications, data operations must often be performed by tools with a semantic understanding of the data. The volume-level primitives provided by orchestrators are not sufficient to support data workflows like backup/recovery of complex, distributed databases. To bridge this gap between operational requirements for these applications and Kubernetes, the open-source project Kanister was  Continue Reading »

Cloud Native Database as a Service using Kubernetes

Written on December 13, 2021 at 7:57 AM, by

In the recent Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) survey, managing complexity is the number one issue faced by Kubernetes architects and practitioners. Deploying stateful applications in Kubernetes further adds to the cognitive load of practitioners. MayaData and Percona have partnered together to build a unified Helm chart aimed at providing an easy onramp to a  Continue Reading »

Migrating MongoDB to Kubernetes

Written on December 10, 2021 at 8:05 AM, by

Kubernetes needs help to create and manage stateful applications like databases. It needs a specific network configuration, persistent storage, and dedicated computing capacity. This applies to MongoDB. This talk goes over an overview of Kubernetes operators for MongoDB, why operators are needed to run MongoDB on Kubernetes. Sergey also explains how to migrate MongoDB to  Continue Reading »

Postgres on Kubernetes Applied at Scale

Written on December 7, 2021 at 7:22 AM, by

DoKC staff Sylvain and Bart interviewed OnGres CEO Álvaro, engaging in an entertaining, technical discussion about a very real use case: running Postgres on Kubernetes, at scale, in production. We covered open-source tools to use, how to properly handle day-2 operations and why you’d be missing out by not running your database on K8s! This  Continue Reading »
