Cloud computing is revolutionizing the way companies develop, deploy and operate software and GeoSpatial software is no exception. With benefits of cloud based deployments range from cost savings to simplified management, flexibility, lower downtime and scalability of dynamic environments it is easy to understand why more and more companies are migrating their on premise systems to the cloud but cloud based setups have their own set of hurdles and challenges.
The migration of the series itself can be challenging. Monitoring, debugging and scaling of applications are very much different than what you are used to.
In this presentation we will share with you the lessons we have learned at GeoSolutions to tackle these problems and share some common patterns for the migration of on premise GeoServer clusters to the cloud. We'll share with you tips on how to:
best practices to migrate your existing GeoServer cluster to the cloud
insights on your geoserver cluster using centralized logging and Monitor plugin
avoid common bottlenecks to best set up a distributed scalable GeoServer cluster
work containers and container orchestrators like Kubernetes
