A Database Month event:

Join Jeffrey as he delves into the world of big data and high performance covering the cutting edge of CPUs, Storage, and networking. His presentation will also teach attendees how to integrate AMPS, the cutting-edge Advanced Message Processing System that is changing the way developers build systems with Real-Time delivery of data using the same SQL semantics that they use to query data in traditional databases. Learn how AMPS not only redefines the SQL vs NoSQL discussion but adds key capabilities missing in all of the current NoSQL databases.

Have you ever heard of an OOF (Out of Focus) event? Well, come learn how to move into the world of Real-Time with a presentation that will cause you to pause and imagine the possibilities.
