The era of Big Data is here, and with it the enormous challenge of scaling the database to support Big Data applications. Sharding costs millions and saddles your teams with permanent, debilitating complexity that adds cost, risk, and time to everything. There is a different way. Join us for this free webinar, and gain invaluable insight into the latest trends and customer-proven solutions for scaling Big Data applications. Insight that you can put into action at your company today!Read more >
In this presentation, we will discuss scaling choices to Big Data, your options, decision points, and how to use existing infrastructure. Traditional relational databases like Oracle and IBM have been the de facto RDBMSs for decades. They do many things very well and are still a strong choice for high performance transactional systems, especially for data volumes below a few terabytes. However, when data volumes begin to scale, many enterprises are looking for more cost-effective alternatives.
Distributed computing (i.e., the ability to scale out on commodity hardware) is a disruptive technology underpinning the new wave of database innovators such as SQL-on-Hadoop, NoSQL and NewSQL solutions. These solutions can offer a dramatic price/performance improvement over legacy databases. Incumbent database vendors have faced threats to their dominance in the past, but it is different this time, because of the volume, velocity, and variety of data growth.
In this presentation we will cover an overview of the Big Data landscape with a focus on scale out architectures.
The ability to collect and analyze up-to-the minute data can provide businesses a competitive edge. From applications developed for online merchandising to those that save human lives or help gaming companies create the next big blockbuster, collecting and analyzing extensive incoming data with speed provides you with the intelligence to make the right decisions and act on those decisions in real time.
During this live event Matt Aslett, Research Director at 451 Research will dig deeper into the advantages of real-time analytics. Matt will examine today’s complex database ecosystem and provide insights into technologies that can deliver on the true promise of real-time analytics.
During this event you will learn:
-The impact of new technologies such as Hadoop and NewSQL on real-time analytics
-Differences between using transactional databases vs. interactive data warehousing for analytics
-Core technologies that enable real-time analytics
