Keeping Your Cloud Native Data Safe: A Common-Sense Guide to Kubernetes, ClickHouse, and Security

Kubernetes is now the default environment for ClickHouse-based analytic platforms. But how to keep your data safe? Our talk is a practical walkthrough of security for ClickHouse on Kubernetes. We'll show you how to divide the security problem into easily understood pieces. Then we'll walk through practical ways you can protect data using the Altinity Operator for ClickHouse, Kubernetes Secrets, managed Kubernetes, and more. You don't have to be a security wizard to protect your ClickHouse data. Common sense and a little organization will do. Join us to find out how!

API World 2023 – Live Event

Oct 24-26, 2023 · Santa Clara, CA, · Virtual Join thousands of global technical leaders, engineers, software architects, and executives at the world’s largest and longest-running API & microservices event – in its 11th year! Our CEO, Robert Hodges, will be speaking about Building Real-time Analytics on Kubernetes with the ClickHouse Operator. If you are looking to transform your apps with real-time analytics, Kubernetes is an outstanding platform operating high-performance databases and ClickHouse runs well on it. This talk starts from the basics of Kubernetes and introduces an operator we implemented that enables you to stand up ClickHouse clusters. We'll walk through the installation process and bring up a ClickHouse cluster in real time during the talk. We'll then show how running on Kubernetes enables emergent behavior like independent scaling of compute and storage, server fault tolerance, cross-AZ high availability, and rolling upgrades. You'll have enough guidance from this talk to start your journey to real-time data on a robust, cloud-native architecture.

Safety First! Using clickhouse-backup for ClickHouse Backup and Restore

Backups protect ClickHouse data in cases ranging from accidentally dropping a database to data centers burning down. In this webinar, we'll compare available backup options for ClickHouse,  then zero in on clickhouse-backup, a popular open-source project that Altinity maintains. The presentation will discuss how clickhouse-backup works, standard backup and restore commands, and tips for reliable operation in production systems. We'll end with Q & A. Join us if you love your ClickHouse data and want to ensure it sticks around!
