Hybrid Databases: Your Cloud's Silver Lining
In our increasingly connected world, developers are moving away from traditional compilation in favor of web-based applications, exposing them to tremendous volumes of potential users across infinite platforms.
Wordpress and Drupal have transformed the way that people host and deliver content via database calls rather than static links and files. Mega-corporations venturing out into new verticals are relying on the same strategy to increase connectivity channels by orders of magnitude. These types of systems require tremendous compute and storage, and are traditionally associated with increased hardware spend or IaaS provisioning.
The rise in cloud platforms is a testament to how important these issues are to individuals, but maybe hardware is not the answer. Maybe it is the way we think about databases, what they are, and what they can do.
This discussion will teach you how an enterprise-grade hybrid database can provide the speed of in-memory data service with the storage capacity of disk in a single unified engine.
