The New Operational Database: Scale-out Transactions & Real-time Analytics

Sergei Tsarev, Co-Founder & CTO, Clustrix
Dmitri Mikhailov, Principal Database Architect, TheLadders

Free beer, pizza, swag and an AppleTV raffle!

A Database Month event:

Cloud, Big Data and analytics are driving the need for a new database - one that scales out both transactions and real-time analytics, and is architected to run on cloud-friendly commodity and/or virtual infrastructure.

Come talk with Sergei Tsarev, CTO and Founder of Clustrix, about the reinvention of the relational database. Clustrix is the first and only row-based SQL database to bring massively parallel processing (MPP) to both transactions and real-time analytics. Clustrix 5.0 allows you to easily scale-out a database that can support massive transaction volumes and use true, real-time analytics to drive real-time business decisions.

Joining Sergei will be Dmitri Mikhailov, Principal Database Architect at TheLadders, the premier online job-matching service. Dmitri and his team have implemented the Clustrix scale-out SQL database at TheLadders; he will speak about their experience and results with Clustrix.

As part of this session, Sergei will also show you how you to set up your own scale-out SQL database on AWS. In addition to AWS Marketplace, Clustrix is available on-demand at Rackspace, GoGrid, Equinix and BlueBoxGroup as well as a database appliance.

Prior to Clustrix, Sergei has led the Internet Operations Systems Infrastructure team at AOL. Sergei's accomplishments include developing the Simple Time-series Database (STDB), a high performance data storage engine for operational monitoring metrics. It has become the standard storage engine for network and host monitoring data for all of AOL. Sergei earned a B.S. in Computer Science from University of Maryland, College Park.

    The questions illustrated a lack of fundamental understanding. Not much for the presenter when the askers were so off base. I'm interested in knowing more about capabilities for delivering cloud and hybrid integration solutions

    Genius product does not warrant monologue presentations. People are bound to ask questions on things they dont understand and are new but the presenter felt too pressurized to answer(Unbelievable!). Everybody comes to meetups to learn something in DB management, I didn't learn anything except that a challenger to market leaders exists in the form of Clustrix. Why is Clustrix superior? Only because a genius rewrote database theory from the ground up and has numbers to prove it. There was no mention of the trade-offs required to use the product (everybody needs some compromise, if nothing else it is cost or a particular unsupported use-case).

    Honestly I'd beg the presenters to give some credit to the audience and provide some insights on why their product is superior instead of just numbers like our esteemed presenters from Cloudant/Riak and MariaDB. Others in the group can disagree but I felt berated today.

      There were many trade-offs discussed. Inherent overhead in writes, performance degradation when provisioning new nodes or schema changes... I don't believe we spoke much about the network overhead incurred during the queries that aggregate large result sets, but we definitely spent along time discussing a lot of things :).

    How would one evaluate suitability of a database (MySQL, PostgresSQL, NoSQL, MongoDB et al) for rapid prototyping, namely for early-stage start-ups?

    • David S.

      I have no association with Clustrix other than having evaluated it for use in my startup, from what I can see it's the truth. The last time I attended a talk they hadn't had it on AWS and since my platform is made for AWS that was an issue, they seem to have rectified that by now having it hosted on AWS...which is a huge motivation for me to use it once I launch teh startup to AWS.

      I will also be at the event tonight if you want to chat, find me!

      Agree with David on small scale projects to start on Mariadb but if you have a fair architecture reason to use NOSQL you can run Mongodb on your laptop within minutes and use a visual client like MongoHub also. To me Mongo vs Maria is a decision just based on the kind of data i plan to store.

    Ugh. Work got in the way again. Sorry.
