We are continue Tech@Agoda tech talks, this time we will talk about Distributed databases at Agoda (Cassandra vs Couchbase vs Aerospike vs ScyllaDB vs SQL shard)
Abstract: We'll compare how the competing (NoSQL) DBs compare with Cassandra. First we will have a recall for what NoSQL and distributed databases stand for. Then we'll be taking a look at Couchbase, but also Aerospike and ScyllaDB which can better utilize NVMe SSDs. We will compare performances but also applicable use cases for these different DBs.
The talk will be by Fabrice Facorat, our senior database administrator.
