Cassandra in production: reliability and scalability for Cassandra deployments

Apache Cassandra, enables organisations to process large volumes of fast moving data in a reliable and scalable way. That’s why companies like Facebook, Instagram and Netflix use Apache Cassandra for mission-critical features.

Balancing the build of a highly scalable database while maintaining data consistency can be a challenge. Further, organizations that deploy Cassandra for the first time want to make sure it’s done correctly, whether that be on-premise or in AWS, Azure or Google Cloud.

In this webinar you will learn:
- Architecture, configuration and security recommendations for Cassandra deployments on private cloud, container and public cloud environments
- The challenges with Cassandra operations on virtual machines and containers
- A management solution to reduce strain, complexity and costs for DevOps teams

Watch this webinar to understand the key design decisions in creating a scalable and reliable Cassandra database.

  • Embedded Kubernetes for secure IoT Edge Jan 19 2022 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    David Beamonte, Product Manager at Canonical, Alex Chalkias, Product Manager at Canonical
    As Kubernetes has established itself as the modern platform to build and run software on the cloud and on-prem, the industry is now shifting its attention to the edge of the compute spectrum.
    Businesses are looking for leaner Kubernetes deployments to be hosted on smaller, resource-constrained environments. IoT devices are provisioned at a very large scale, and operated at a distance, to be physically decommissioned only in the case of an insurmountable issue.

    MicroK8s running on Ubuntu Core embeds a CNCF-conformant Kubernetes into IoT edge solutions, with minimal resource consumption, self-healing high availability, and automatic over-the-air updates. This allows for reduced operational costs and provides a robust platform for cloud-native applications.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn:
    - What are the benefits of embedded Kubernetes for IoT Edge
    - How to build edge Kubernetes clusters with MicroK8s
    - What is Ubuntu Core and how it differs from Ubuntu classic
    - What are the benefits of running MicroK8s on Ubuntu Core
    - 5 easy steps to embed Kubernetes on your IoT device

  • MicroK8s on IBM Z — minimal footprint meets zero downtime Dec 7 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Alex Chalkias, Product Manager | Frank Heimes, Technical Lead | Lorenzo Cavassa, Field Engenieer
    A low-ops, minimal production Kubernetes on Ubuntu for your IBM Z/LinuxONE system.

    Mission critical applications require a resilient Kubernetes, that can lose any node and still provide reliable services while zero downtime is a necessity in production environments, especially for remote, unattended clusters, appliances, servers, and industrial IoT.

    MicroK8s is the smallest and fastest Kubernetes that makes high availability resilient and self-healing with no administrative intervention required. The IBM Z platform is a perfect fit for such types of Kubernetes infrastructural and aaS workloads — thus Container As A Service / CaaS.

  • Building cost-efficient open source cloud operations Dec 7 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Omar Amin, Product Manager
    On average, 55% of IT budgets are spent on operations, keeping the lights on. Organisations are constantly trying to find the right balance between running efficient operations and exploring the new possibilities of digital transformation. And as more organisations move towards the cloud, many missed expectations occur. But how can an organisation build the right strategy to minimise the skill gap and spend less on operations while increasing efficiency and innovation?

    In this session, we will discuss:

    - The business perspective behind digital transformation
    - The challenges associated with open source solutions like OpenStack & Kubernetes
    - How to categorise your IT activities and gain control of your IT budget
    - How to structure a business-centric IT organisation that focuses on innovation rather than keeping the lights on

    Tytus Kurek (Canonical Product Manager), Alex Kavanagh (Canonical Software Engineer)
    Upgrades remain one of the biggest challenges in OpenStack environments. While initial deployment usually isn’t much of a problem for cloud operations teams, upgrading production environments to the latest version can be a nightmare. As a result, some OpenStack vendors haven’t been even supporting upgrades for years. At the same time, Canonical customers have been benefiting from automated upgrades from the early days of Charmed OpenStack.

    During this exciting event OpenStack experts from Canonical: Tytus Kurek and Alex Kavanagh will discuss the latest improvements around the upgrade experience in Charmed OpenStack and demonstrate how to upgrade a production cloud with minimal downtime.

  • Secure AI models deployment at the edge with OpenVINO™ on Ubuntu containers Recorded: Nov 17 2021 48 mins
    Valentin Viennot - Canonical, Miłosz Żeglarski, Ryan Loney - Intel
    Building a secure software supply chain is the challenge facing developers of tomorrow's applications. Deep learning models in frameworks like PyTorch and TensorFlow require complex pipelines, composing from abundant resources. From training the models to testing, optimising, and deploying them on OCI images with OpenVINO™. This webinar will focus on the deployment on containers phase, building on the work done by Intel and Canonical to provide not only developer-friendly yet also secure and stable container images. By combining Ubuntu containers with the OpenVINO™ Model Server, developers can deploy and manage inference-as-a-service on a range of Intel® platforms using Kubernetes – from the edge to the cloud.
  • Cybersecurity & Compliance with Ubuntu Recorded: Nov 11 2021 49 mins
    Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos, PhD, Product Manager; Lech Sandecki, Product Manager; Jonathan Sackett, Engineering Manager
    Cybersecurity’s state of affairs today can be described as too complex. The average IT team faces an enormous number of threats, ranging from “social engineering” attacks to the exploitation of obscure software vulnerabilities. At the same time, the result of data breaches can be severe: operations were disrupted in a pipeline company, while a telecommunications company hack exposed the private data of 50 million customers. Regulators and customers expect more, and sectors that manage critical infrastructure such as healthcare, banking, digital infrastructure and services, water supply, energy, and several others are held to high security standards. The EU’s NIS2 directive, or the US’ executive order on cybersecurity demonstrate that the direction is clear. Critical infrastructure needs to be deployed and maintained securely for its lifetime, and Canonical’s Ubuntu is well positioned to provide the foundation of a successful cybersecurity program.

    In this webinar, we will:
    - Provide an introduction to cybersecurity and zero trust.
    - Highlight the common challenges faced in the implementation of cybersecurity programs, including challenges in vulnerability management, secure configuration of software and defenses against malware.
    - Discuss how Canonical and Ubuntu can help manage these challenges and lay the foundation of a successful cybersecurity program.
