Scaling your Microservices with Redis and Kubernetes

By: | July 19, 2018

Description: “What do you do when parts of your monolithic app begin to hockey stick? Do you duck tape those parts when they break? Do you rewrite your entire app with scalability in mind? What if you could gradually do both? With Redis and Kubernetes you can! Redis became famous by solving hockey stick problems (remember the Twitter Fail Whale?). Kubernetes became famous by solving the microservices problem (remember Pokemon Go?). There are 100’s of examples like these. Together, Redis + Kubernetes can teach your whale to scale one microservice at a time. In this session, Dave will demonstrate how service discovery in Kubernetes made it easy to create microservices and how Redis made it easy to scale.”

Speaker: Dave Nielsen, Head of Ecosystem Programs, Redis Labs

Speaker Bio: As Head of Ecosystem Programs, Dave uses emerging best practices and open source projects like Microservices, Serverless & Kubernetes to bring the magic of Redis to the broader community. Dave has extensive ecosystem experience from his years running CloudCamps around the world while working in the web, cloud and big data trenches. Prior to Redis Labs, Dave created and promoted Intel’s BigDL container project on public cloud providers; and at PayPal where he helped bring PayPal’s first web api’s to the world.
