Talk: Distributed Database DevOps Dilemmas? Kubernetes to the rescue!
Distributed databases can make so many things easier for a developer, but not always for DevOps. Kubernetes has come to the rescue with an easy application orchestration! It is straightforward to do the orchestration leaning on relational databases as a data layer. However, it is more difficult to do the same when a distributed SQL database or other kinds of distributed storage is used instead. In this presentation, attendees will learn how Kubernetes can orchestrate a distributed database.
David Gildeh, Founder and CEO @ Outlyer
Talk: Why NOT to build your own time-series database
At Outlyer, we do infrastructure monitoring at scale, and as our customers moved to microservices and containers we've seen an exponential growth in metrics and the challenges of collecting and querying all of those metrics in real-time. Over the past few years, we've had to build 3 TSDB architectures as we scaled, with the second iteration almost taking our service down as customers ramped up to tens of millions of metrics each! In this talk David will share the challenges of collecting time-series at scale, the mistakes we made along the way, and how we ended up finally fixing them with a complete redesign last year using Atlas from Netflix as a key component.
