Hey guys!

Just wanted to take a second and let you know about and invite you to the meetup for my startup Akiban Technologies. 

We've developed a NewSQL technology called Table-Grouping, which eliminates joins between tables, thereby increasing performance 10-100 times. Currently, we're working with design partner companies that are running the Akiban Server in their environment to put it through rigorous testing. In mid-May the server will be open source. 

NoSQL document stores are generally considered at the opposing extreme to relational databases. Schema and SQL are perceived to be at the core of the problem. 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. We'll be covering the architecture and operational ideas that underline the Akiban Server, which is being used by a number of large SaaS companies [running MySQL | whose applications are written in PHP | Ruby ] with really interesting use cases.

Ori Herrnstadt is the founder and CTO of Akiban. He has been involved in developing large scale operational database systems since his days in the Israeli Military. After experiencing similar problems of large-scale operational systems in healthcare, ERP, CRM and modern web applications, he began developing the Orthogonal Architecture. In 2009, he founded Akiban Technologies to accelerate the development of this technology. 

We'll also have a ton of food/ drinks plus t-shirts, mugs, USB drives...etc giveaways. We hope to see you all there for a great night. You can learn more and RSVP here!

Thank You,

Robert Riegel
