About this talk

No matter the industry – telco, financial services, medical devices – companies depend on applications to deliver services and/or to connect with customers. In this digital age, companies must accelerate application delivery to keep up with ever-changing customer demands and market pressures. Modern application architectures and infrastructure - including microservices and containers - have emerged to deliver the application agility needed to propel digital transformation projects forward. However, traditional database architectures are guilty of anchoring both data and applications, forcing organizations to contend with heavyweight processes and development models. Monolithic relational databases simply weren’t meant to scale dynamically and can’t deliver the agility businesses and applications need. NoSQL databases scale, but force existing applications to go through a redesign process that is time intensive, expensive, and risky - requiring new technology training and support. What is needed is a modern container-native SQL database - a flexible, distributed system that delivers the benefits of a typical SQL database (transactional consistency and ACID compliance) and is built to address the data and application demands of an agile, rapid development container environment. In this webinar we will: • Discuss the drivers for Digital Transformation initiatives • Review how microservices and containers provide development agility • Describe database options and what it means to be "container-native" • Provide an overview and benefits of NuoDB's container-native SQL database
