CNPDX Sept.: Cloud-Native Databases


Sep 26, 2018, 1:00 – 3:30 AM

In-person event

About this event

Our September meetup is all about Cloud-Native databases!

For an opening act, CNPDX organizer Josh Berkus will demo a walk-through of deploying high availability PostgreSQL as an application on Kubernetes.

Our main event will be:

Deploying TiDB, a distributed open-source MySQL-Compatible HTAP Database, using Kubernetes

This talk will introduce TiDB's architecture, key use cases, a user story with Mobike (one of the largest bikesharing platforms in the world), and a deep-dive into deploying TiDB as a *stateful* application using Kubernetes. TiDB is built by the company PingCAP and its open-source community.

Speakers: Ed Huang (co-founder/CTO of PingCAP), Kevin Xu (GM of U.S. at PingCAP)

As a special bonus for this meetup, TiDB will do a business card raffle for a Google Home Mini at the end of the presentation.

Our meetup host this month will be software maker Eleven.
