Let’s kick off FOSDEM with some interesting Kubernetes talks!
Talk 1: "Running MySQL on Kubernetes: comparison of the Oracle, Presslabs, and Percona solutions" (Mykola Marzhan, Tech Lead at Percona, one of the authors of the Percona Operator)
Running databases in Kubernetes attracts a lot of attention today. Orсhestration of MySQL on Kubernetes is no way a straightforward process. There are several good MySQL based solutions in the open source world, made by Oracle, Presslabs, and Percona. Having common base, they differ in self-healing capabilities, multimaster and backup/restore support, etc. So let’s make a fair comparison to figure out the pros and cons of their current state.
Talk 2: "Troubleshooting Kubernetes apps" (Michael Hausenblas, Developer Advocate for Kubernetes and a CNCF ambassador)
Kubernetes makes it easy to run cloud-native apps in a portable and resilient way. But what if something fails? How to find out what caused a CrashLoopBackOff error? What can be done about a service that is not reachable? How to debug a stateful application? How to do fault injection in a microservices setup? In this talk, we’ll discuss the most common reasons an app in Kubernetes fails and how to address them.
Food will be sponsored by Red Hat
Other talks TBC.
