We have announced the keynote speakers for the upcoming NoSQL Now! Conference in San Jose. The article states, “This year’s line-up will include NoSQL heavy hitters including Adrian Cockcroft of Netflix, Max Schireson of 10gen, and Andy Mendelsohn of Oracle. The program will also include technology pioneers Nathan Marz, the creator of Storm, and Peter Olson, digital comic innovator at Marvel Entertainment. NoSQL Now! takes place August 20-22 at the San Jose Convention Center, in the heart of Silicon Valley.”

Tony Shaw, CEO of DATAVERSITY and co-chair of NoSQL Now! commented, “Keynote speakers should provide both thought leadership and industry guidance, and we have both in abundance at this year’s conference. This year will be crucial to the evolution of the marketplace, as incumbent database giants like Oracle start to compete more aggressively with NoSQL market leaders like 10gen. It’s a clear indication that NoSQL databases are here to stay.”

The article goes on, “Kicking off the keynote presentations on Wednesday, August 21st, Andy Mendelsohn of Oracle, will discuss Oracle NoSQL Database and what customers can expect to see from this software giant as the demand for huge, high-performance data continues to expand. Then Nathan Marz, recently at Twitter and the creator of the real-time computation engine Storm, will talk about real-time computation. Marz was the lead engineer at BackType before being acquired by Twitter in 2011, where he started the streaming compute team which provides and develops shared infrastructure to support many critical realtime applications throughout the company.”
