Building a Big Data Stack on Kubernetes
Event Description There is growing interest in running Apache Spark natively on Kubernetes (see https://github.com/apache-spark-on-k8s/spark). This meeup will discuss how to build a big data stack on Kubernetes. Specifically, you will learn how Spark scheduler can still provide HDFS data locality on Kubernetes by discovering the mapping of Kubernetes containers to physical nodes to HDFS datanode daemons. You’ll also learn how you can provide Spark with the high availability of the critical HDFS namenode service when running HDFS in Kubernetes.

What we're about

Public Group

BayLISA is the premiere system administration user group in Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area. Founded in the very early 90s after the fourth Large Installation System Administration (LISA) conference, BayLISA has supported and educated systems, network, storage, virtualization, and other technology professionals in the Bay Area for over 20 years.

We use Meetup to coordinate meeting attendance, announcements, and reminders. We have our official organizational presence on the web, including links to membership, sponsorship, and mailing lists, at www.baylisa.org (http://www.baylisa.org/).

Our legacy description:

One way to put it is that there are many user groups, but we are the sysadmins group. BayLISA includes system and network administrators across a range of skill levels. BayLISA meets monthly to discuss topics of interest to administrators and managers of sites supporting more than 100 users and/or computers. The meetings are free and open to the public.

BayLISA grew out of an after-hours discussion among attendees of the USENIX LISA IV conference. The idea was to provide a forum for Sysadmin professionals in the San Francisco Bay area to get together and exchange ideas, hear speakers address topics of interest and most importantly, socialize.
