Multi-cloud essentials: How we operate CockroachDB at Form3

The Form3 engineering team have been working on our multi-cloud payments platform project since 2020. CockroachDB is an essential technology for this project, ensuring that we have a resilient, consistent, and scalable data storage layer.

In this talk, we'll share the most interesting challenges of the multi-cloud project and how we solved them together with the CockroachDB team:

  • Changing access patterns when moving from PostgreSQL to CockroachDB
  • Managing multi-cloud backups without impacting performance
  • Using our own encryption keys with External Secrets Operator
  • Implementing observability and monitoring with Grafana
  • Performance optimization and application design
