Aerospike Co-Founder and CTO Brian Bulkowski Analyzes the Impact of NoSQL and Flash SSDs on Fast Big Data During Database Month

Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — 2013 is the year of Fast Big Data. As part of the world-wide Database Month 2013, Aerospike co-founder and CTO Brian Bulkowski will speak in New York City on Wednesday, May 8.

HOW NOSQL AND FLASH SSDS ARE CHANGING BIG DATA Hear from an industry veteran how Flash SSDs are changing the face of real-time big data and becoming an increasingly popular choice for developers looking to deploy consumer-facing applications that rely on real-time user response analysis. Increasingly, these developers are turning to a combination of SSD storage and NoSQL databases to deliver highly relevant, high-value data and actionable insights in milliseconds. In his presentation, Brian will examine these emerging generations of fast big data applications, the demands these apps place on databases and data storage, and recent architectural developments in NoSQL database and SSD storage technologies to address these demands.

The event will take place at the AOL building at 770 Broadway (at East 9th St.) 6th Floor, New York, NY. The event kicks off with a swag giveaway at 6:30p.m., followed by Power-Networking at 6:40p.m. The presentation will begin at 6:45 p.m. RSVP to attend here.

EXPERIENCE WHERE IT COUNTS Brian has over 20 years of experience designing, developing and tuning networking systems and high-performance Web-scale infrastructures. He was a founding member of the digital TV team at Navio Communications and chief architect of Cable Solutions at Liberate Technologies where he built the high-performance embedded networking stack and the Internet-scale broadcast server infrastructure.
