    • Are Containers Ready to Run NoSQL Databases?
      Are Containers Ready to Run NoSQL Databases? Adeesh Fulay, Director Products Recorded: Aug 25 2016 5:00 pm UTC 61 mins
    • The database is the quintessential data dependency for any application. Databases in production environments tend to be performance sensitive and expect consistent and predictable performance from their underlying infrastructure. On the other hand, databases in dev/test environments need to be fast, agile and portable.

      Due to this paradox, production databases are typically deployed on bare metal servers for maximum performance and predictability. This often leads to underutilization of hardware, idle capacity, and poor isolation. On the other hand, dev/test databases are deployed on VMs which are fast to deploy, improve hardware utilization and consolidation, are fully isolated, and are easy to move across data centers and clouds, but suffer from poor performance, hypervisor overhead and unpredictability.

      In this session, we will discuss:

      - How NoSQL databases like Cassandra can benefit from container technology
      - If the current storage systems can support containerized databases
      - How to alleviate data management challenges for large databases
      - How the Robin Containerization Platform can deliver bare-metal-like performance, while retaining all virtualization benefits

    • Embedding database analytics as stored external procedures
      Embedding database analytics as stored external procedures Wendy Hou, product manager and Mark Sweeney, sales engineer, Rogue Wave Software Recorded: Dec 10 2015 6:00 pm UTC 53 mins
    • Inside or outside, which is better? You know that embedding analytics in databases offer several benefits including security, performance, and enabling users to take advantage of the analytics more readily. But how do you do it?

      In this installment of our embedded analytics series we discuss embedding analytics using stored external procedures – an option provided by all major commercial RDBMS providers. These procedures are invoked in the same manner as internal stored SQL procedures but they run in a process space separate from that of the database itself. This separation can be advantageous in certain scenarios. In particular, if a data set is selected for analysis that pushes the limits of physical memory then the database is isolated from any issues that arise in running the analytics on this problematic data.

      In this webinar, you will see detailed steps on how to implement the analytics as a shared library using IMSL Libraries for C for illustration.

    • Why Application Performance Management Needs Better Database Monitoring
      Why Application Performance Management Needs Better Database Monitoring Mike Kelly, SelectStar CTO & Milan Hanson, Forrester Senior Analyst Upcoming: Mar 7 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • There's a lot of emphasis going into tracking the customer's transaction performance through all of the factors that might slow it down. Today there is lots of emphasis on looking into the source code, looking at APIs, looking into the network, looking into the servers, VMs, and containers on-prem or in the cloud. But let's not forget an essential component that's not getting a lot of attention: databases. Customer obsession and performance management depend as much today as ever -- maybe more -- on databases. And they're not getting any simpler! Complex distributed databases like Hadoop, Cassandra, and NoSQL require monitoring and management that's very different and much more complex -- monitoring that integrates into the APM systems and analytics required to achieve customer obsession.

      In this webinar, join guest speaker, Forrester Senior Analyst Milan Hanson, who will discuss the importance of customer experience, customer obsession and the technological and cultural shift this creates. Following Milan, SelectStar General Manager Mike Kelly will highlight key trends driving database monitoring and management, including how it relates to application performance.
