New real-time applications require databases that can process larger volumes of transactions than what is possible with current market-leading relational databases. And while more recent NoSQL databases are able to scale out so that they can handle extremely large volumes of data, they cannot guarantee consistency. While this is acceptable for some types of data such as social network bulletin boards, it does not work for most business critical data such as stock quantities or money. But what if there was a happy medium? A database that could process millions of transactions on a single machine, while maintaining the consistency that these business critical applications require? There is! In this presentation, Peter will describe a different kind of a NewSQL database, which will process millions of ACID-compliant transactions while scaling in on a single machine to fully ensure consistency. He will also delve into the technical differentiators between traditional relational databases, NoSQL and NewSQL databases and what applications they are best-suited for.
