This talk introduces ClickHouse and shows why it’s a ‘cloud friendly’ DBMS. We’ll go mano-a-mano with the ClickHouse operator, showing how you can spin up data warehouses in 60 seconds or less. We’ll cover issues like storage management, monitoring and upgrade. In short, everything you need to know to try running your own ClickHouse data warehouses on Kubernetes.
