Hybrid Databases: The Yin & Yang of Transactional and Analytical Processing

In this action-packed presentation, we will discuss the challenges involved in handling a wide spectrum of workloads and how you can solve them by leveraging unique and adaptive multi-storage engine architectures to create a true hybrid database system.

Using a number of specialized engines, each with its own secret sauce, and collaborating in real time, you can build a hybrid database system that supports modern business needs and associated application patterns without requiring costly, fragile and overcomplicated custom architectures - saving both time and money.

Separating transactional and analytical processing has become a totally old-school antiquated approach that is no longer acceptable. Modern digital businesses, and the applications needed to run them, require support of rapid data-driven decision-making within increasingly-complex business environments that need answers to data-driven questions in a timely manner.

This instills the need for the database to handle a wide spectrum of workloads, from huge volumes of miniscule transactions predominantly inserting data (i.e. IoT) to operational loads with many concurrent transactions and a high proportion of updates, to analytical loads of large and complex queries traversing large numbers of rows with complex filtering, aggregation and calculation.

You need a hybrid database to do all this effectively; come and enjoy this presentation, where you will learn all about hyrbid databases and how you can benefit from all the gains that it provides!
