Redundancy Across Data Centers with Kubernetes, WireGuard and Rook
Several court rulings and a guideline from the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) made it clear: It is a huge legal risk to process EU personal data on US-owned clouds. Therefore, many Kubernetes administrators are scrambling to port their environments to an EU cloud provider or their on-prem data centers.
Unfortunately, such environments often lack the notion of “availability zone”, which makes cross-data-center redundancy difficult. Needless to say, Kubernetes application developers would be disappointed to learn that porting their Kubernetes-based stack to a new cloud provider implies a degradation of business continuity.
In this talk, Cristian will demo how to host a containerized application with cross-data-center redundancy using Kubernetes, Rook / Ceph, Calico, and WireGuard.
