What we're about

90% believe Kubernetes is ready for stateful workloads, but few patterns exist for building and operating data-centric applications on Kubernetes. The Data on Kubernetes Community (DoKC) exists to help end users jumpstart or advance your journey running data on Kubernetes.

We have content for seasoned pros and those who are just getting started. We hope you'll join us our virtual meetups that spotlight DoK case studies, use cases, how-tos and more!

## Learn

DoKC has produced a range of resources for end users looking to run DoK including:

  • DoK Landscape. An interactive landscape of products and services for running data workloads on Kubernetes.
  • Videos and Blogs. Over 700+ videos and blogs including how tos, tutorials, use cases, case studies, and more.
  • DoK Reports. DoKC works with an independent research firm to annually produce the industry’s only DoK-focused report.
  • Livestreams and Local Meetups. Regular virtual livestreams on DoK-related topics including demos, tutorials, visionary talks, panels, and more.
  • DoK Days @ KubeCon. We host hybrid events for people to get together and learn in-person or online. Details are published on our main website.

## Communicate

You can connect with us in many ways. Below is a list of our primary channels to join discussions within DoKC:

## Contribute

  • Host your own local, in-person meetup. Join the DoK Slack #wg-events for details on how to start your own local meetup.
  • We also facilitate the DoK Operator Special Interest Group (SIG) that discusses ways to solve operator challenges on behalf of end users. Join the DoK Slack #sig-operator to learn more and participate.

We are the Data on Kubernetes Community (DoKC), where end users go to share best practices for running data workloads on Kubernetes.

We're excited to host the second DoKC Town Hall virtual event in June 2023! This is a growing event to bring the community together to meet each other, share end-user journey stories, DoK-related projects and technologies, and keep you up-to-date on community events and ways to participate. Meetings will be held on the third Thursday of each month at 9am PT.

Unsticking Ourselves from Glue: Migrating PayIt’s Data Pipelines to Argo Workflows and Hera
Presented by Matt Menzenski, Senior Software Engineering Manager, Payitgov

At PayIt, we’ve been deploying applications to Kubernetes almost since the beginning of the company. Our data workloads, however, have run instead in AWS Glue. This has worked well enough for the reporting use cases that have been the main focus of this team historically. However, at the beginning of 2022, the PayIt data team began building out a new data platform, and in the process, ran into a number of challenges with Glue. In this talk, I will share the difficulties that we encountered with building, deploying, and orchestrating ETL pipelines in AWS Glue, our decision process for moving those workloads into Kubernetes, and the ELT architecture that we’ve arrived at today.

[9:35 AM]
Repel Boarders! How to find a Kubernetes operator that really protects your data
Presented by Robert Hodges, 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 what protection you should look for in operators. Finally we'll introduce a new Data on Kubernetes Community project to develop security standards for database operators in Kubernetes.
