The Future of Deployment for Modern Data Platform Applications

Full Day
DBA, Database Developer, Architect
Hybrid Infrastructure
Join Data Platform MVPs Anthony Nocentino and Ben Weissman for a deep dive into the future of application and system deployment: Kubernetes. First, we will cover the basics of Kubernetes: what is it, who can use it, what can it be used for, why is this different or better than old school deployments through virtual machines? Then, we'll show you how to build a Kubernetes cluster and deploy applications into this cluster. Building on those Kubernetes deployment fundamentals, you will also learn how to deploy a SQL Server Big Data Cluster to showcase how you can deploy a complex stateful application in Kubernetes. We will close the day by working our way through the next gamechanger for deployments: Azure Arc Data Services, a solution that allows us to deploy managed Azure Data Services to any hardware running Kubernetes, including any cloud vendor, on-premises or in the cloud. You will leave this session with the knowledge, scripts, and tools to get started with Kubernetes and Kubernetes based applications.
