This is the second 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…

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…

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…

Our new database-as-a-service offering, SingleStore Managed Service , was relatively easy to create – and will be easier to maintain – thanks to Kubernetes. The cloud-native container management software has been updated to more fully support stateful applications. This has made it particularly useful for creating and deploying SingleStore Managed Service, as we describe here. From Cloud-Native to Cloud Service SingleStore is a distributed, cloud-native SQL database that provides in-memory…

SingleStore product marketing leader Mike Boyarski led the webinar, describing how SingleStore is well-positioned to power operational analytics . Operational analytics is the ongoing use of live and historical data to drive decision-making by both people and programs, including predictive analytics, machine learning, and AI. To do operational analytics you need to quickly ingest, analyze, and act on both incoming and existing data – all of which is in the wheelhouse of SingleStore. To view the…

With the arrival of the cloud, organizations face new opportunities – and new challenges. Chief among them is how to take the greatest advantage of public and private cloud resources without being locked into a specific cloud or being barred from access to existing infrastructure. Container solutions such as Docker offer part of the solution, making it much easier to develop, deploy, and manage software. In our webinar , product manager Micah Bahti describes how to take advantage of the next…

Kubernetes has taken the world by storm, transforming how applications are developed, deployed, and maintained. For a time, managing stateful services with Kubernetes was difficult, but that has changed dramatically with recent innovations in the community. Building on that work, SingleStore is pleased to announce the availability of our SingleStore Kubernetes Operator, and our certification by Red Hat to run on the popular OpenShift container management platform. Kubernetes has quickly become…
