DoK Community, Bilbao, Spain

March 23 @ 6:00 pm 9:00 pm CET


Edificio Ensanche (Zabalgune Plaza, 11, 48009 Bilbao, Bizkaia)

On March 23, at 06:00 pm CET, the DoK talks in Bilbao return. As in previous meetings, some of the descriptions are in English but the talks will be entirely in Spanish.

What will we have this time? Let’s see:

  • Should I run my DB on a managed provider or in Kubernetes? (¿Mi base de datos: gestionada en cloud… o en Kubernetes?)

Álvaro Hernandez , CEO of Ongres

Until recently, there were two ways to manage your database: “manually” (on-prem or on cloud instances) or at a cloud provider that offers it as a managed service. But for a few years, there is a third one and it is growing a lot in popularity: in Kubernetes.

Seriously, on Kubernetes? If you are an agnostic, don’t miss this talk, you might start to believe. And if you were already contemplating this option, do not miss this talk because we are going to break down all the advantages and disadvantages of all the alternatives, so that you know how to choose your best option.

Total cost, automation, features, integration, control, extensions… we will analyze the contenders in all dimensions. The debate is served. Do not miss it.

  • Sailboat in Kubernetes, backup strategy for databases

Jorge Mentxaka, Cloud Native Developer at Purple Blob

Data on top of Kubernetes, on top of an operating system, on top of a file system, on top of a hard drive…
We know how the story ends. Velero allows us to navigate this uncertainty with the assurance that our backups are done on time, fit and practical for our databases! All without leaving K8s

  • Data processing elastic workloads using event-driven autoscaling

Jorge Turrado , Maintainer at KEDA

Working with Data on Kubernetes usually means that we need to process a huge amount of information. When this information is related to user actions, this information flow tends to be irregular, with huge peaks during some hours and lower load the rest of the day.

How can we deal with these peaks using an efficient way? CPU is a metric that we can use to scale out/in, but this doesn’t solve all the cases.

Kubernetes doesn’t have any mechanism to scale based on events, but luckily there are CNCF projects we can use for that like Knative, or KEDA (the project we’ll talk about).

During this session, we will briefly introduce the project and also a demo showing how it works with some technologies like Apache Kafka or RabbitMQ.

  • Building a Digital Factory for the Sheet Metal Industry

Elie Assi, Senior Devops Engineer en Kurago

We develop systems to digitize the sheet metal industry with the belief that they should cooperate with each other in an open way. We are convinced that the future lies in creating a software ecosystem that interconnects all levels of the company and even manages to communicate with supplier and customer systems, making for more agile management throughout the entire value chain.

One of our newer projects is providing a multi-tenant cloud service to our clients. The chosen database for the service we are developing is MongoDB. After testing with docker containers on virtual machines, we decided to finally host the service in Kubernetes because we wanted something to be able to scale at large for our clients being a service that will be consumed by a multitude of our clients, so to the database in order to reduce latency.

  • Soon, we will update the title and the description of the talk.

Diego Nieto, Software engineer, Altinity
