Hybrid Databases: Your Cloud's Silver Lining + beer/soda/snax, win 5 Chromecasts

Free beer, desserts, soda, swag + five people will win a Google Chromecast!

Nicholas Porcaro, Senior Database Technologist, Altibase
Chris Chung, CEO, Altibase

A Database Month event http://www.DatabaseMonth.com/database/hybrid-databases

In our increasingly connected world, developers are moving away from traditional compilation in favor of web-based applications, exposing them to tremendous volumes of potential users across infinite platforms.

Wordpress and Drupal have transformed the way that people host and deliver content via database calls rather than static links and files. Mega-corporations venturing out into new verticals are relying on the same strategy to increase connectivity channels by orders of magnitude. These types of systems require tremendous compute and storage, and are traditionally associated with increased hardware spend or IaaS provisioning.

The rise in cloud platforms is a testament to how important these issues are to individuals, but maybe hardware is not the answer. Maybe it is the way we think about databases, what they are, and what they can do.

This discussion will teach you how an enterprise-grade hybrid database can provide the speed of in-memory data service with the storage capacity of disk in a single unified engine.

Nicholas Porcaro is the Senior Database Technologist at Altibase and has a deep understanding of databases through his many years as a technical engineer in various platforms. He has experience in various verticals including pharmaceutical and electronic hardware but is constantly expanding his technical knowledge base through his position at Altibase.

    It was a great presentation. The speaker really was able to get my attention and not bore me, unlike some speakers. Very articulate and methodical when giving different use cases. Will be interesting to use their XDB product on memory intensive applications.

    Am I allowed to bring a +1?

      Certainly okay! It is best if your +1 also rsvp's if they can, but they should come regardless.

    Hello all, just wondering if the Google chromecast "raffle" will be done via a trivia style contest? Or will it be truly random? Thanks

    May 25, 2014

    • Eric David B.

      The 5 people winning chromecasts will be picked randomly - the rest of the swag will be trivia-style, to whomever can answer the questions correctly (or puts in a good effort attempt)
