The Right Database for the Right Job

Presented by: Nuri Halperin
Time: Friday, Jan. 12, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Picking a database for your particular purpose is hard, and vendors don't make it easier. So which database is right for which workload?

This session breaks down the decision factors into characteristics that let you decide and reason with them on even ground.

We will examine the underlying technology and core strength of each database. Is it distributed I/O? Is it in-memory? Does it rely on indexing? Columnar? Row-Oriented? Document? With this understanding, we can match our expected workloads to the most appropriate technology.

With this knowledge, you will be able to:
- Identify core capabilities of major databases.
- Fit your workload needs to the right DB engine.
- Cut through the hype.
