Resilient Redis

Redis is a widely used open-source in-memory data store and cache that has become a key component in the development of scalable microservice systems. While all of the main cloud providers provide fully managed Redis services (Amazon ElastiCache, Azure Cache for Redis, and GCP Memorystore), it may also be simply implemented in Kubernetes if you  Continue Reading »

Operating FoundationDB on Kubernetes

FoundationDB is a free and open-source multi-model distributed NoSQL database developed by Apple, with a shared-nothing architecture. In this talk, Apple Site Reliability Engineer Johannes M. Scheuermann shares how to run the FoundationDB on Kubernetes. Which is something the company does on a large scale. Johannes talks about what the FoundationDB operator can do and  Continue Reading »

Bringing Apache Cassandra closer to Kubernetes

Aside from geo-distributed workloads, Apache Cassandra also works great as a stand-alone service. However, since Cassandra was built before Kubernetes existed, there’s a mismatch in how they do things.¬† In line with the series of takeaways we got from DoK Day 2022, Jake Luciani, Chief Architect at the DataStax, discusses how they made Apache Cassandra  Continue Reading »

Leaning on Kubernetes Portability to Manage Databases Anywhere

Developing a Multi-cluster Operator with the K8ssandra Operator

Cassandra is a highly scalable database with an architecture that makes it well suited for multi-region workloads. A Kubernetes cluster often spans across multiple zones within a single region. However, multi-region Kubernetes clusters are less common though due to the technical challenges that they present. This has led to a growing number of multi-cluster solutions.  Continue Reading »
