  • Go Beyond Virtualization with Bare-Metal Cloud Recorded: Jan 14 2014 34 mins
    Organizations have been turning to cloud infrastructure in an effort to cut IT costs and capitalize on technology innovations. But just a few short years into the cloud revolution, new options have emerged to meet the growing demand for high-performance cloud solutions.

    Workloads that require more processing power and faster access to data can put stress on traditional, virtual clouds, causing unacceptable variability and lackluster performance. For IO or CPU intensive use cases like, location analysis, real-time monitoring, or media processing, bare-metal clouds are emerging as an ideal alternative.

    The bare-metal cloud offers a dedicated environment without the overhead of virtualization, allowing the server’s operating system and applications to maintain the most efficient use of physical resources.

    Attend this webinar to learn:
    •What are bare-metal clouds and how do they work?
    •What are the main advantages of using bare-metal clouds?
    •What are some typical use cases for bare-metal clouds?
    •How can you leverage bare-metal cloud to accelerate big data performance?
  • Intro to Aerospike Recorded: Jan 8 2014 38 mins

We will describe common use cases, typical customer deployments and present an overview of Aerospike's hybrid in-memory (DRAM + Flash) and scale-out architecture.
  • Hot Analytics & Transaction Processing in a single Operational NoSQL Database Recorded: Oct 22 2013 63 mins
    As a developer, if you are building a consumer facing application, you are always looking to create the most compelling user experience by performing instant, on-demand analysis of current behavior. To do this, you need to store the most valuable and relevant recent data based on user's recent interactions and access this data in real-time. The system that provides the necessary real-time platform is usually a key value store. In addition, models are generated using offline systems (e.g., Hadoop) and fed into the real-time database on a periodic basis.

    The ability to do fast key value operations, combined with more sophisticated queries on recent or hot data could change the game, increasing the level of user engagement, with more sophisticated behavioral models that change in real time. What is the most efficient and simplest way to perform complex computations on the most recently written real-time data (hot analytics)? In this session, we will describe how to extend an operational database to perform more sophisticated computations like queries using secondary indexes and complex user-defined aggregation functions while allowing high performance read/write transactions to proceed in real-time.
  • Ensuring 100 Percent Database Uptime for Real-Time Big Data Recorded: Aug 21 2013 40 mins
    Internet environments for consumer-facing applications routinely demand high throughput and sub-millisecond latencies for read/write transactions against terabytes of data, and service-level agreements demand 100% uptime.

    This session will review 10 proven practices for ensuring the high performance and availability that interactive Internet applications demand—even during power outages or natural disasters.

    The lessons include:

    -When scaling, keep it the architecture simple, so there are fewer points of failure. For instance, load balancers may fail at high transaction rates even as the database is cruising.

    -Provide full end-to-end automation. People make mistakes, and anything that’s not automated will have production issues.

    #3. Keep the system asynchronous; otherwise one small failure will quickly snowball into an avalanche of degradation.

    -Keep metrics of everything, because scale tends to creep up from behind, and no one wants to be caught blind.

    Tune in to hear them all!
