Migrating to NewSQL

The path to modern, real-time and machine data use cases

Webinar Description

Traditional RDBMs struggle to support modern application requirements: structured & unstructured data, real-time analytics, time series data, geospatial data, and IoT data.

NoSQL databases offer data flexibility and scalability, but increase access lock-in, making them harder to adopt and integrate.

NewSQL databases like CrateDB combine the ease of use of SQL with the scalability and data flexibility of NoSQL databases.

Join this webinar to learn what’s so new about NewSQL databases, what workloads they handle best, and best practices for putting them into use.
