February Meetup: Databases on AWS

Save the date !! We're super excited to host our February 2020 meetup with Karthic and Vijaya Sagar on AWS Databases.

Talk I Title: Introducing Dgraph and tips and tricks for running your own distributed database on EKS

Abstract: Dgraph is an open-source, transactional, distributed, native Graph database. Dgraph is optimized for high-performance reads and writes. It can serve queries and mutations with low latency and high throughput, even when they involve deep joins and traversals. We all know about Kubernetes, the favourite container orchestration platform for most developers.

Running stateless services on K8's is by far the most popular use case for K8's, and there's a mixed opinion for using it for deploying and managing your databases.

About Speaker: Karthic works as a Developer Advocate at Dgraph Labs during the day and is a musician by evening. With over five years of contributions to developing infrastructure tools in Open source Go, he has the unique distinction of contributing to a web server in Go (Caddyserver), a distributed object storage in Go (Minio.io) and now a distributed database written in Go.

Talk II Title: Running Multi-tenanted Databases on AWS RDS - Technical & Operational Considerations

About Amagi: Amagi offers a managed SaaS platform, CLOUDPORT, for 24x7 broadcast of linear content for TV and OTT streaming platforms. CLOUDPORT has to cater to high SLA needs of its customers (typically four 9s) while operating on public cloud infrastructures such as AWS and GCP, that may not provide such SLAs across their services.

About Speaker: Vijaya Sagar is Head of Cloud Engineering at Amagi. He has over 20 years of experience in software engineering, with prior stints at Gracenote, Althea, Wipro, InSilica and SiRF. His areas of interest include systems software & firmware, custom operating system kernels, programming language theory, web-scale cloud computing system architectures and machine learning / AI.
