Keeping Pace with a Distributed Database
The move from scale-up to scale-out architectures has challenged developers to re-think database design. It's been a great forcing function, resulting in a number of systems that combine traditional database functionality with modern scaling capability. What is sometimes lost in that discussion, however, is how difficult it is to manage a distributed system.
In this talk I'll introduce you to the newly released NuoDB 2.0, a NewSQL database that can be distributed across data centers, and demonstrate why the user experience should be considered part of the criteria for judging scale.
Seth is the CTO at NuoDB. He has nearly 20 years of experience, focusing on distributed computing, networking, security and other fun systems problems.
Before NuoDB Seth worked for Nokia, and before that Sun Microsystems, tackling large-scale systems and understanding not just how to make technology scale, but to do it in such a way that users can scale with it.
