Cloud Field Day 10: Ondat The Cloud Native Storage Platform


It’s not often that we get a chance to present to a room with many of the best independent thought leaders in the enterprise cloud space.  Although Ondat presented at Tech Field Day back in November 2016, presenting at Cloud Field Day 10 in 2021 was particularly special.

This event follows an incredible start to the year for Ondat after closing an oversubscribed Series B funding round and outperforming industry competitors in the Performance Benchmarking Cloud Native Storage Solutions for Kubernetes report by Chris Evans.

Ondat Live Demo: Database as a Service

After a thoroughly engaging and low level technical analysis, Paul handed the baton to Ferran Castell, Product Reliability Engineering to bring real-life context to the technical deep dive through the use of two live product demos.

Ferran introduced the first demo ‘Ondat Live Demo: Database as a Service’ with a synopsis that was then used to demonstrate a live migration of Postgres databases to a Kubernetes environment with multi-cloud portability and persistent storage.

The demo covered how to build a Database as a Service with persistent storage, highlighting the benefits of self service and the composable means of creating anything-as-a-service end to end when Ondat is used for persistent storage.

Ondat Live Demo: Database High Availability

Ferran Castell and Paul Sobey then proceeded to demonstrate the implementation of automatic failover with high availability in the ‘Ondat Live Demo: Database High Availability’, demonstrating how mission critical databases with Ondat are highly available and how database data is transparently protected behind the scenes.
