Cassandra and Kubernetes
In this interactive presentation, Ben Bromhead, CTO and Co-Founder of Instaclustr, will introduce the Cassandra Kubernetes Operator, a Cassandra controller that provides robust, managed Cassandra deployments on Kubernetes.

Kubernetes has become the most popular container orchestration and management API with cloud-native support from AWS, GCP, Azure, and a growing enterprise support ecosystem. Leveraging Kubernetes to provide tested, repeatable deployment patterns that follow best practices is a win for both developers and operators.

By adopting Kubernetes and Cassandra, you can provide DBaaS like services rapidly and easily to the rest of your team and have a simple on-ramp to true multi-cloud capabilities to your environment.
