"Distributed Database DevOps Dilemmas? Kubernetes to the rescue!"

Distributed databases can make so many things easier for a developer, but not always for DevOps. Kubernetes has come to the rescue with an easy application orchestration!
It is straightforward to do the orchestration leaning on relational databases as a data layer. However, it is more difficult to do the same when a distributed SQL database or other kind of distributed storage is used instead.

In this presentation, attendees will learn how Kubernetes can orchestrate a distributed database like Apache Ignite, in particular:

• Cluster Assembling - database nodes auto-discovery in Kubernetes.
• Database Resilience - automated horizontal scalability.
• Database Availability - what’s the role of Kubernetes and the database.
• Utilizing both RAM and disk - set up Apache Ignite in a way to get in-memory performance with the durability of disk.

A bit more about Ignite: Apache Ignite is a high-performance, integrated and distributed in-memory platform for computing and transacting on large-scale data sets in real-time, orders of magnitude faster than possible with traditional disk-based or flash technologies.

Ignite is a collection of independent, well-integrated, in-memory components geared to improve the performance and scalability of your application. Some of these components include: Advanced Clustering, Data Grid, SQL Grid, Streaming and CEP, Compute Grid, Service Grid, and the Ignite File System. Ignite also has integrations for accelerating data processing frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark.

"Tungsten Fabric: Open Source Multi-Cloud Networking at Scale"

Tungsten Fabric (http://www.tungsten.io; formerly OpenContrail) is an open source, scalable and multi-cloud networking platform being used by large enterprises and service providers at massive production scale. Tungsten Fabric is integrated with Kubernetes, VMware and OpenStack. It also supports public cloud deployments including AWS, Google and Azure. As both Enterprise and Telco IT architectures evolve, supporting multi-cloud environments is table stakes. This meetup will lay out how users can quickly get going with Tungsten Fabric, using software-driven networking and policy management to operate in a multi-cloud environment.
