This is the third blog post derived from the recent DZone webinar given by Rob Richardson, technical evangelist at SingleStore. (From the link, you can easily download the slides and stream the webinar.) Kubernetes was originally developed to manage containers running stateless workloads, such as computation-intensive processing tasks and web servers. It was then extended to allow you to manage stateful workloads, such as data tables and e-commerce sessions, but doing so is not easy. Rob is…

Kubernetes was originally developed to manage containers running stateless workloads, such as computation-intensive processing tasks and web servers. It was then extended to allow you to manage stateful workloads, such as data tables and e-commerce sessions. However, doing so is not easy. One of the people who has figured out how to do this well is our own Rob Richardson, technical evangelist at SingleStore. In a recent DZone webinar , this three-part webinar series, Rob shows you how to build…

You can run SingleStore Managed Service , with a 48-hour time limit, in the cloud for free. We tell you how in this blog post. The combination of free access, and not needing to worry about infrastructure maintenance, can be extremely convenient for demos, software testing, developer productivity, brief proof of concept (PoC) tests, and brief tests of production workloads. Many Ways to Run SingleStore for Free Because there are significant costs to SingleStore, free trials of SingleStore…

Kubernetes is widely discussed, and widely misunderstood. We here at SingleStore are fans of Kubernetes and the stateful services that have been added to it since its launch, and we’ve used them to build and manage SingleStore Managed Service. So we are taking the time to explain Kubernetes’ architecture, from the top down, to help you decide whether using Kubernetes is right for you. What is Kubernetes? Kubernetes is an open-source orchestrator originally built by Google, now owned and managed…

The MEAN stack – MongoDB, Express.js, Angular.js, and Node.js – has served as a pattern for a wide variety of web development. But times have changed, and the components of the MEAN stack have failed to keep up with the times. Let’s take a look at how the MEAN stack superseded the previous stack, the LAMP stack, and at the options developers have now for delivering efficient Web applications. Introduction We reach for software stacks to simplify the endless sea of choices. The MEAN stack is one…

This blog post is part of a series describing how to run an entire SingleStore cluster – which usually requires at least five servers or machine instances – on your laptop, in a Linux virtual machine (VM). That’s right – even though SingleStore is a distributed system, you can run a minimal version of SingleStore on your laptop, in a single Linux VM. We tell you how in this blog post. You also have the option of running SingleStore on your laptop in other environments – see our blog posts for…

This blog post is part of a series describing how to run an entire SingleStore cluster – which usually requires at least five servers or machine instances – on your laptop, in a Linux virtual machine (VM) provisioned by Vagrant, a tool for managing virtual machinres. That’s right – even though SingleStore is a distributed system, you can run a minimal version of SingleStore on your laptop, in a single Linux VM, with a tool you may already know how to use. We tell you how in this blog post. You…

Microservices architectures have focused heavily on compute services, with data storage and retrieval – a crucial topic – sidelined, and left as an exercise for the developer. Crucially, Kubernetes did not include direct support for stateful services (ie, databases) initially. The Red Hat developers blog has suggested that data management is The Hardest Part About Microservices . In response, in this blog post, we suggest that a NewSQL database, such as SingleStore, can provide data services to…

Even though SingleStore is a distributed system, you can run a minimal version of SingleStore on your laptop in Kubernetes. We tell you how in this blog post. The combination of free access, and being able to run SingleStore on your laptop, can be extremely convenient for demos, software testing, developer productivity, and general fooling around. In this post we’ll quickly build a single-instance SingleStore cluster running inside Kubernetes on Docker Desktop, on a laptop computer, for free…

Even though SingleStore is a distributed system, you can run a minimal version of SingleStore on your laptop in Docker. We tell you how in this blog post. The combination of free use of the software, and being able to run SingleStore on your laptop, can be extremely convenient for demos, software testing, developer productivity, and general fooling around. In this post we’ll quickly build a single-instance SingleStore cluster running on Docker Desktop, on a laptop computer, for free. You’ll need…
