Presenter: Scott Shadley, Senior Business Development Manager, Micron Technology

When it comes to real-time big data, some SSDs perform better than others. Learn about Aerospike's hybrid-memory (DRAM + SSD) approach to NoSQL.

Hear Scott Shadley from Micron talk about the latest SSD developments and why MIcron drives perform as well as they do. Finally, learn how to determine which SSD will work for your database deployment.

About Aerospike
Aerospike is the only real-time NoSQL database built from the ground up to take advantage of today’s multi-core, multi-processor architectures and solid-state drives (SSDs). That’s what makes it fast – 500k TPS per node with sub-millisecond latency. Hybrid architecture with indexes in-memory and data either in-memory or on flash. Strong consistency, tightly coupled clusters (auto replication, re-balancing, cross data center synchronization) reliably store billions of objects and terabytes of data. Native flash means fewer servers, less power, lower ops costs than with just DRAM. Deployed in demanding environments for almost 3 years with no downtime. See our other events at .
