NoSQL document stores are generally considered at the opposing extreme to relational databases. Schema and SQL are perceived to be at the core of the problem. Akiban Server is an open source database that brings document stores and relational databases together. Developers get powerful document access and schema evolution capabilities alongside surprisingly powerful SQL. In this presentation Ori will cover the architecture and operational ideas that underline the Akiban Server.
Ori Herrnstadt is the founder and CTO of Akiban. He has been involved in developing large scale operational database systems since his days in the Israeli Military. After experiencing similar problems of large-scale operational systems in healthcare, ERP, CRM and modern web applications, he began developing the Orthogonal Architecture. In 2009, he founded Akiban Technologies to accelerate the development of this technology.
We'll also be providing pizza and drinks for attendees, as well as Akiban swag (USB drives, coffee mugs, t-shirts..etc). Our meetup groups are always a lot of fun with lively conversation throughout, we hope to see you there!
