NoSQL and NewSQL: Tradeoffs Between Scalable Performance & Consistency

Presented by

Avishai Ish-Shalom, Developer Advocate at ScyllaDB

About this talk

Traditional relational databases provide strong consistency, but they can be difficult to scale. Non-relational databases scale more easily, but generally offer less strict consistency guarantees. Now a new class of database, known as NewSQL, promises both strong consistency and the ability to scale. In this webinar, ScyllaDB developer evangelist Avishai Ish Shalom will compare NoSQL and NewSQL databases. We will look at the significant architectural differences between the two; tradeoffs between availability, scalable performance and consistency; data models and other considerations. We will also share benchmark results to display the performance implications of NoSQL versus NewSQL. For this purpose we will compare Scylla with best-in-class NewSQL database CockroachDB. By attending this webinar you’ll get: - An overview of NoSQL and NewSQL - Highlight of architectural differences between NoSQL and NewSQL - Tradeoffs between scalable performance and consistency in NoSQL and NewSQL - YCSB Benchmark results for Scylla and CockroachDB
