About this event


Welcome BACK to SF Bay Area IN PERSON meetups!

We'll be meeting at a venue kindly provided by Avesha. Please RSVP ONLY if you plan to attend in person--we need to estimate food & bev requirements. :) Doors open at 6pm for networking. We'll start the festivities by 6:30pm.

Here is the agenda.

[6:00pm] Doors open

[6:30pm] Welcome and announcements from meetup organizers

[6:40pm] Multi-cluster data management on Kubernetes using layered operators by Prasad Dorbala of Avesha. Kubernetes operators automate the deployment, scaling, and management of stateful databases like PostgreSQL, MySQL, and MongoDB. Operators can be extended to multi-cluster deployments including public cloud, hybrid, multi-cloud or edge. Network connectivity and service discovery operators are also needed for database operator deployment across clusters. In this talk, we'll examine different layers of operator frameworks that are needed for end-to-end experience of database services in the enterprise for consistency, reducing complexity and automating repeated tasks.

[7:10pm] Repel Boarders! How to find a Kubernetes operator that really protects your data by Robert Hodges of Altinity. Operators are a godsend for managing data in Kubernetes. But how about protecting it? We'll explore security threats to cloud native databases and show how what protection you should look for in operators. Finally we'll introduce a new DoK project to develop security standards for database operators in Kubernetes.

[7:40pm] Operating data on Kubernetes for a cloud agnostic DevOps tools platform by Arul Jegadish of Opsverse. OpsVerse's cloud agnostic DevOps tools platform has several components that manage data. For example, Jaeger needs to persist billions of spans from OpenTelemetry and provide real-time analytics on that data. We will dive into best practices to install, scale and operate complex data tools like Clickhouse, VictoriaMetrics and Postgres on K8s.
