About this event

Join us for a talk and demo with CNCF member Portworx discussing the how-tos and best practices for deploying stateful applications to Kubernetes.

Portworx is a leader in cloud-native storage solutions and a founding contributor to many open-source projects including OpenStorage, an API layer for cloud-native storage


Containers aren't just for stateless apps. You have mission-critical stateful applications like Postgres, MySQL, Kafka, or Cassandra databases that you want to run in containers.

In our presentation, we cover use cases and best practices for delivering stateful applications at scale.

What we will cover:
• Do's and don'ts of running stateful applications on Kubernetes
• Best practices for delivering stateful applications at scale
