About the Webinar

VoltDB RegisterSQL: New? No? Yes? Maybe?

There’s a lot of noise in the data management space – and it doesn’t help that we tend to talk in terms of categories vs. what kind of problems we’re trying to solve. Broad categorizations and all that chatter make it hard for practitioners to understand what’s in the toolbox.

The many new databases available are not all alike – and recognizing how the DNA behind each helps and hinders problems solvers is the key to success. First, you have to figure out what your data needs to do – or what you and your customers need to be able to do with it.

Like Mike Stonebraker always says, when it comes to databases, “one size does not fit all.”

Determine what business issues you’re looking to solve, then pick your tool. Otherwise, you’ll never get to where you want to go.

Join VoltDB’s CTO, Ryan Betts, as he cuts to the database chase in this interactive webinar. He’ll set you straight on which databases are right for building apps that need to deliver:

  • Availability
  • General-purpose document stores
  • Raw storage capacity
  • Screaming-fast speed
