March's topic is about VoltDB, a relational database.
VoltDB will present a use-case based overview of what VoltDB is and the types of problems it helps to solve. We'll also discuss some newer VoltDB features, including the WAN replication beta functionality and command logging (a durable write-ahead log). This will be an interactive presentation and questions from the group are welcome.
This presentation will be given by VoltDB software developers Ryan Betts and Ning Shi.
