  • Big Data Use Cases and How to Choose the Right Tech Stack for your App
    Big Data Use Cases and How to Choose the Right Tech Stack for your App Jeff Kelly, Wikibon Principal Analyst Recorded: Dec 3 2014 55 mins
    The explosion of data offers enterprises and start-ups alike virtually limitless possibilities for new, innovative data-driven applications. Too often, however, practitioners choose the technology to support new applications before the use cases are fully baked out resulting in poor performance and untapped potential. Join Wikibon Big Data Analyst Jeff Kelly, Applovin Founder and CTO John Krystynak and Aerospike co-Founder and CTO Brian Bulkowski in this hour-long webinar as they discuss why application use cases should drive technology decisions and how Applovin applies this approach to help its customers optimize the mobile experience.

  • Practical Guide to SQL - NoSQL Migration
    Practical Guide to SQL - NoSQL Migration Anton Yazovskiy, Solution Architect, Thumbtack Technology Recorded: May 8 2014 46 mins
    In this webinar, Anton will explain the main advantages of NoSQL and common use cases in which the migration to NoSQL makes sense. You will learn about key questions that you have to ask before migration, as well as important differences in data modeling and architectural approaches. Finally, we will take a look at typical application based on RDBMS and will migrate it to NoSQL step by step.

    Key topics that will be covered:

    * Why would you want to migrate to NoSQL
    * Conceptual differences between RDBMS and NoSQL
    * Data modeling and architectural best practices
    * "I got it. But what exactly I need to do?" - Practical migration steps

    Anton has been an active user of many NoSQL databases, including Cassandra, MongoDB, MarkLogic, Aerospike and HBase. Like many people, he learned some of the difficulties behind polyglot persistence and choosing the right NoSQL solution the hard way, and performed many migrations of systems, from relational to NoSQL databases. His goal with this webinar is to help others avoid common pitfalls while learning more about NoSQL solutions in general and the migration process in particular.

    Anton Yazovskiy is a Software Engineer at Thumbtack Technology, where he focuses on high-performance enterprise architecture. He has presented at a variety of IT conferences and “DevDays” on topics such as NoSQL and MarkLogic.

  • Go Beyond Virtualization with Bare-Metal Cloud
    Go Beyond Virtualization with Bare-Metal Cloud Adam Weissmuller, Director of Product Management, Agile Hosting, Internap Recorded: Jan 14 2014 34 mins
    Organizations have been turning to cloud infrastructure in an effort to cut IT costs and capitalize on technology innovations. But just a few short years into the cloud revolution, new options have emerged to meet the growing demand for high-performance cloud solutions.

    Workloads that require more processing power and faster access to data can put stress on traditional, virtual clouds, causing unacceptable variability and lackluster performance. For IO or CPU intensive use cases like, location analysis, real-time monitoring, or media processing, bare-metal clouds are emerging as an ideal alternative.

    The bare-metal cloud offers a dedicated environment without the overhead of virtualization, allowing the server’s operating system and applications to maintain the most efficient use of physical resources.

    Attend this webinar to learn:
    •What are bare-metal clouds and how do they work?
    •What are the main advantages of using bare-metal clouds?
    •What are some typical use cases for bare-metal clouds?
    •How can you leverage bare-metal cloud to accelerate big data performance?
