About this event

We are excited to announce the November Meetup scheduled for Wednesday, November 20th at Improving.

There'll be 2 speakers for this Meetup.

First Presentation: How To Create Highly-resilient SQL Database For Your Microservices Inside Your K8s Cluster Using CockroachDB

Come to this session to learn how to store stateful data from your microservices in an always-on, ACID-Compliant SQL database. CockroachDB can run within the same K8s cluster as your microservices; it will keep running even in the case of multiple instance failures and will auto-recover itself the same way your microservice apps do. In addition, you can even extend the cluster to other K8s clusters to keep the same state for your microservices or even make your apps resilient across regions.

In this session, you will learn how this technology works and will get a walk-through of how to set up a CockroachDB cluster in your own environment so that you can test it for yourself.
