Archived Webinar: Navigating the Database Universe

The design decisions you make today will have a huge performance impact down the line. For databases, until recently, the choice was easy. Essentially, you had one option: the RDBMS. Today, there’s a new universe of databases being thrown into production – and some not always to the greatest success. How do you make the right choice for your next application? Database pioneer Dr. Michael Stonebraker and VoltDB co-founder Scott Jarr have some thoughts.

Archived Webinar: OldSQL vs. NoSQL vs. NewSQL on New OLTP

Remember how we used to buy airline tickets – through a travel agent? That was commerce at the speed of the intermediary. In 1985, 1,000 TPS was considered an incredible stretch goal. Fast forward to today and we see new applications coming online every day requiring transaction throughput of hundreds of thousands of TPS. How can organizations ingest and manage data with such throughput requirements? Should they try to manually shard their favorite legacy RDBMS to gain speed and scale? Should they give up SQL and ACID altogether and adopt a NoSQL datastore? Are there emerging alternatives within the RDBMS domain that support high velocity applications, without throwing the baby out with the bath water?

Watch this webinar with Dr. Michael Stonebraker, RDBMS pioneer, for an entertaining and illuminating look at alternative approaches for addressing high velocity data problems. Dr. Stonebraker discusses OldSQL, NoSQL and NewSQL alternatives in the context of New OLTP applications.

Archived Webinar: Choosing the Best Database for Your Online Games

Selecting the right database for your next product can be a complex and time consuming process. Many game developers have gone the route of MySQL/memcached, and the trade-offs of this choice are pretty well understood. There are also a lot of new datastores on the market today, particularly around the NoSQL theme. What are the situations when these make sense? This webinar identifies the key data management requirements common to many online games and map those requirements to available database solutions. It covers criteria such as speed, scalability, flexibility, data consistency, operational ease, developer productivity, license and community. It compares different database alternatives in the context of these criteria, and explores under which circumstances each one is the best fit for gaming applications.
