OPEN TALK: Building a Data Plane with K8ssandra, Apache Cassandra on Kubernetes


Chris Bradford
DataStax, Product Manager

Christopher Bradford is a Product Manager at DataStax with a role in everything Kubernetes. For the years he has been immersed in the world of distributed systems and AP databases. Christopher loves a good challenge and the complex deployment models, network topologies, and stitching together of cloud offerings never leaves him in short supply.

Recently he has focused on the trivial deployment and management of Apache Cassandra (and supporting tools) through the open source projects K8ssandra and cass-operator. Previous speaking engagements by Christopher include Cassandra Summit, Spark Summit, Kong DevOps Summit along with a number of meetups and webinars. Topics have ranged from geographic data replication to ETL pipelines with Cassandra, Spark, and Solr for 200 years of Patent data.



K8ssandra has made it effortless to deploy Apache Cassandra on Kubernetes. Long a simple means of deploying stateless applications, modern tooling and APIs has facilitated the move of databases to this pervasive platform. Join Chris Bradford in deploying the K8ssandra stack to Kubernetes. Learn how it packages a production Cassandra deployment with supporting tooling alongside Stargate, a next generation data gateway. We will explore everything from the management interfaces leveraged by DevOps teams to performant, highly available, REST, Graph, and Document APIs for developers.
