Aerospike Founder Demonstrates How to Break the Predictable Database Performance Barrier at the Surge 2012 Scalability and Performance Conference

Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — Big data brings big opportunities to those enterprises capable of acting quickly enough. However, peak database speeds do not predict success. Instead, businesses demand databases with reliable sub-millisecond response times and 100% uptime to turn their Web-scale data into actionable insights. Meeting this demand is no longer impossible as databases apply new architectural principles and technologies. At the Surge 2012 conference, Srini V. Srinivasan, Aerospike founder and vice president of engineering and operations, will explain how the Aerospike (formerly Citrusleaf) real-time NoSQL database and key-value store has harnessed these developments to shatter the predictable performance barrier. Surge 2012 runs September 27-28, 2012, at the Tremont Plaza Hotel in Baltimore, MD.

Architectural Approaches to Breaking the Predictable Performance Barrier

In his presentation, Srini will discuss how databases that produce lightning-fast benchmarks in the lab often fizzle when they get into full-scale production where they need to run hundreds of thousands of transactions per second (TPS), reliably and without fail. He will then examine how Aerospike has broken the predictable performance barrier with its real-time NoSQL database and key value store by applying new architectural principles and optimizing the database for technologies such as flash and SSDs. Additionally, Srini will review of customer deployments that illustrate how Aerospike’s database architecture simultaneously enables predictable performance of 300k TPS per node, sub-millisecond query responses, and 100% uptime—all while managing terabytes of data and billions of objects.

When: September 28, 9:30-10am

Where: Ionic Room, Tremont Plaza Hotel
