Relational databases and NoSQL document stores are generally considered to be at opposing extremes. Schema and SQL are perceived to be at the core of the problem with relational databases. Akiban Server is an open source database that brings document stores and relational databases together. Developers get powerful document access and schema evolution capabilities alongside surprisingly powerful SQL. In this presentation Ori will cover the architecture and operational ideas that underline the Akiban Server.
