Solving the Conundrum of Containers and Databases (Ep. 72)

Containers offer a new, simplified way to deploy and operate databases. But the approach brings with it a host of challenges, including how to manage state and migrate data between environments. In this episode of Pivotal Insights, SnappyData's Jags Ramnarayan joins Jeff and Dormain to talk through the promise and perils of containerized databases. They also chat about the evolving role of the data engineer and how data professionals fit into the cloud-native organizational structure.
