In this post, we’ll give you a sneak peek of our presentation at KubeCon 2021, where DataStax and Google Cloud Platform will show you how to leverage Kubernetes and Apache Cassandra to more easily manage distributed applications with thousands of nodes across both on-premises and in the cloud. Traditionally, managing data layers for a distributed application was handled with dedicated teams to manage the deployment and operations of thousands of nodes, both on-premises and in the cloud.
Now, how do we handle the routing of this data and the communication and discovery of all of this?
An easier answer is to use overlay networks, in which you build out a separate IP address space for your application, which, in this case, is a Cassandra database.
If you want to learn more about how to leverage Kubernetes and Apache Cassandra to better manage your distributed applications on-prem and in the cloud, we’ll show you how at Kubecon 2021.
