Learn amazing new data tech from technology creators, founders & tech execs CEO / CTO / CIO / VP.

All of our presentations are geared for a general-audience of people interested in database technologies; many events go into deep-tech but always include prerequisite knowledge so that all attendees (beginners to advanced) can expect to be able to grasp the concepts and leave much more knowledgeable.

SQL NYC is the world's largest database community on Meetup, focusing on NoSQL, NewSQL & Big Data.

Prior speakers have included:
- Creator of MySQL
- Both founders, CEO and CTO, of MongoDB
- Inventor of PHP
- Chief Technical Officer of the City of New York
- Founder of Microsoft Azure DocumentDB
- CEO of Couchbase
...and the list goes on...

About our SQL NYC community, written by Edward Oates:
(Ed Oates co-founded Oracle Corporation with Larry Ellison)

Data is at the center of our technological revolution: acquiring it, accessing it, searching it, analyzing it, and securing it. Nearly everything else we do is to provide a user friendly window for those activities.

Gathering to learn about data management and security is a vital activity to motivate the innovators who will sustain our technological progress and who will make the break through inventions that advance us by leaps rather than steps.

🚀 How to Get Unlimited Scale with Real-Time SLAs From Your Rich Database Apps

► Free swag-giveaways & bar-snacks plus a raffle to win a rocket!!!
► Presented by Founder & Chief Technology Officer of Aerospike, Srini V. Srinivasan
► Super-fun evening at a pub in our own private event-room with bar!

This presentation will share with you our lessons-learned over a decade of experience!

You will learn how we deployed and operated a variety of real-time applications at both the edge and core of the enterprise, through deployment of real-time distributed data platforms.

These applications require strict real-time SLAs, round-the-clock availability, capability to handle massive data sizes up to multiple petabytes and sustainable usage of resources, all while keeping total cost of ownership affordable.

Processing more data in real-time significantly improves the accuracy of machine-learning based decision-making, and that empowers businesses to grow fast.

The technology and systems architecture will be the focus of this presentation, along with use-cases demonstrating how the architecture improves real-time SLAs at scale. We will discuss use-cases about how to achieve large-scale real-time data processing in sectors of gaming, finance, telecommunications, e-commerce, advertising and other industries.

We will also discuss the developer APIs and the key capabilities for application development using key-value, document, Spark, Presto (SQL), graph and time series databases.
