Past Webinars

Mike Stonebraker on Designing An Architecture For Real-time Event Processing

In this webinar, Mike Stonebraker explains the tradeoffs of performance, scale, and required programming “heroics” in capturing the value of fast data with different stream processing alternatives. Then hear from John Hugg, Founding Engineer of VoltDB, as he discusses the VoltDB approach to fast data. Learn what’s possible when systems integrate event processing with state management in a consistent, transactional way.

Stream and state: Robust and stable solutions for streaming transactions

In the race to join streaming systems with stateful systems, the winners will be stateful systems that process streams natively. These systems remove the burden on application developers to be distributed systems experts, and enable new applications to be both powerful and robust. The tools to build these kinds of operational systems are evolving, but immature. Systems that focus on just streaming neglect state and vice-versa. Cobbled-together hybrid systems offer flexibility, but are complex to develop and deploy, may mask bugs, and may display surprising behavior when components fail. In this webinar, John Hugg, Founding Engineer at VoltDB, explores what's possible when systems integrate event processing with state management in a consistent, transactional way.
