ADatabase Monthevent

Advancements in application architectures, development processes, & storage have enabled organizations to take advantage of cloud benefits such as agility, elasticity, & scale-out across most layers of the infrastructure stack. But one key element - the database tier - has remained stubbornly difficult to modernize. Often, as organizations move toward container & cloud-based environments, they end up leaving their database, their SQL skillsets, expectations of transactional consistency, & sometimes even their precious data behind.

To address this problem, a new class of database - the elastic SQL database - has emerged. These solutions combine the ACID guarantees & SQL interface on which applications rely, while also allowing dynamic capacity management, continuous availability, multi-datacenter operation, & radical operational simplicity.

Join us to learn what makes an elastic SQL database an ideal solution for modern hybrid cloud applications.

We will have a live demonstration on how to take advantage of this technology to optimize your application for fast transactional responsiveness, continuous availability, & full-active database utilization, even across multiple clouds, data centers, or hybrid environments.

We will cover:

Why the need for an elastic SQL database

What can you do with one & best use cases for an elastic SQL database

Examples of how an elastic SQL database works

Benefits of optimizing/configuring for:

fast application data access

continuous availability

deployment across data centers
