About this event

18:00-18:30 - Gathering, Pizza and Drinks (sponsored by Couchbase)

18:30-19:15 - DB operations on Kubernetes with the Couchbase operator, Lior King

Operators are a design pattern for automatic management of application
on top of Kubernetes. Couchbase was the first NoSQL DB to release an
operator for Kubernetes that automates the management of the database cluster. In this session we will introduce Kubernetes operators, and discuss their benefits over Stateful Sets for running distributed
databases inside Kubernetes, as seen in the Couchbase operator.
We will discuss the unique architecture of Couchbase and how it is deployed dynamically inside Kubernetes. We will also demonstrate how a Couchbase database can be entirely managed in Kubernetes just by a YAML file.

19:15-20:00 - Rightsize your Kubernetes Deployments using VPA, Dan Benjamin

Last, Dan will cover some best practices for using VPA.
