How to Evaluate a Distributed SQL Database

Presented by

Andy Oliver, Senior Director, Product Marketing, MariaDB

About this talk

Distributed SQL databases are among the fastest-growing, most exciting new data and cloud computing technologies. For years IT organizations have relied on expensive, proprietary client-server relational databases based on 40-year-old technology. While client-server databases have been dependable, they were not designed for cloud computing or modern scale and availability requirements. However, not all distributed SQL databases are equal. Vendor claims often do not match the production experience. How do you evaluate whether a distributed SQL database is the right solution and sort out which one suits your needs? In this presentation, you will learn: • What differentiates distributed SQL databases from other database types • The application types and use cases that are appropriate for distributed SQL • Features and characteristics to consider in evaluating a distributed SQL database • How to design a solution evaluation and proof of concept (POC)
