Is the Future of NoSQL... SQL?

Webinar Description

NoSQL databases like MongoDB, Elasticsearch, and Cassandra are synonymous with scalability, search, and developer agility. But there’s a downside...having to give up the ease and comfort of SQL.

Or do you?

Join this webcast to learn how the newest databases, like CrateDB and CockroachDB deliver the benefits of NoSQL with the ease of SQL by building SQL engines on top of custom NoSQL technology stacks. Database industry veteran Andy Ellicott, who helped launch Vertica, VoltDB, Cloudant, and now with Crate.io, will provide a no-BS view of current DBMS architectures and predictions for the future of data.

If you’re a DBMS user, this webcast will help you make sense of a very crowded DBMS market and make better-informed decisions for your new tech stacks.
