Redpanda and a ClickHouse Operator UI: December ‘21 SF Bay Area ClickHouse Meetup

The final SF Bay Area ClickHouse Meetup for 2021 took place on December 15th. We have videos and slides for a couple of fine talks to share. If you would like to see the full meetup video, check out the YouTube live stream.  

The first talk was from Roko Kruze of Vectorized. Roko presented on Redpanda and ClickHouse. Redpanda is a high performance event platform that has received rave reviews for high throughput and low latency. It has Kafka-compatible APIs with simple administration. Roko’s talk introduces Redpanda, digs into the architecture, and shows how to connect it to ClickHouse. Here is the video link on Youtube. If you just want to jump to the slides, they are here

The second talk was from Graham Mainwaring and Robert Hodges of Altinity. The talk introduced a new user interface for the ClickHouse Operator for Kubernetes called Altinity Dashboard. (Youtube video link here.) It allows users to install the operator and bring up clusters through a pure web interface that also shows the state of both operator and ClickHouse resources within Kubernetes. Altinity encourages users to try out the operator and send feedback. Slides are here; there is also a blog article from Graham that provides more details. 

Both talks prompted many questions, and we also had the usual Q&A on ClickHouse itself. Thanks to Denis Zhuravlev (aka Denny Crane) for attending and helping to answer on ClickHouse topics. 

The first SF Bay Area ClickHouse Meetup for 2022 is scheduled for February 16 at 12pm PT. You can RSVP now. We have talks lined up on the ClickHouse Roadmap for 2022 as well as a special presentation from Materialize on building materialized views from real-time event streams. Give us a shout at if you have something you would like to present. We love to add new projects. 

Until then, Happy New Year!
