We're thrilled to be kicking off 2018 at DevOps Days Charlotte! DevOpsDays Charlotte will bring 200+ development, infrastructure, operations, information security, management and leadership professionals together to discuss the culture, processes and tools to enable better organizations and innovative products.
VividCortex engineer Preetam Jinka will be speaking on February 23rd at 3:00pm at the event. Check out his session here. His talk is titled DevOps Comes To The Database, and the gist of it is:
Databases are special because they’re stateful, and DevOps reflects this: in practice, databases are a lot harder to “DevOps” (as a verb) than other parts of the stack. It’s easy to “DevOps the infra” and “DevOps the web frontend” and so on, because you can just use a declarative tool to make it be the way it should be, and if one of them goes belly up you just kill and replace it. But you can’t do that with the database, and what often happens is orgs get really open-minded about EVERYTHING BUT THE FREAKING DATABASE.
Hope to see you this week in Charlotte!
