Petascale Key Value Stores and App Driven Analytics (swag/wine/beer/food­/prizes)

Free T-shirts/swag, wine/beer/drinks, candy/food + win $100 Amazon giftcard!

Brian Bulkowski, Co-Founder & Chief Technical Officer, Aerospike

A Database Month event

Recent innovations in storage, like SanDisk's new InfiniFlash offering, are driving higher storage densities and lower prices. Flash-optimized-NoSQL has the scalability to handle InfinFlash's 512G of Flash, and a two node HA DB cluster capable of over 1M TPS could fit in only 5u.

These solutions enable analytics with Java, a new programming model of compute at an easy to program Java application layer. This architecture removes the need to outguess a SQL optimizer or debug stored procedures.

The talk will discuss this emerging architecture, hardware options and prices along with example use cases.

    Showed us where database hardware is going, and that there's software that makes fast hardware even faster, while affordable to those with certain budgets.

    Do we really need to print a ticket?

    June 1, 2015

    • Eric David B.

      No, ticket is not at all necessary - just RSVP online and that is it :)
