How to Scale Your Database in the Cloud with Clustrix

Who Should Attend:  Developers, DevOps, and Database Administrators

You’re invited to this exclusive learning and networking event March 28, 2013. Register today as seating is limited.

The database should be the app team’s best friend. But when it’s not scaling, it’s their worst enemy. It’s even more difficult in the cloud – where sharding and scale-up are simply non-starters.

What’s needed is a database that scales out to match the cloud’s basic architecture, yet still looks and acts like a full-featured RDBMS. Clustrix is exactly that. All the power of an RDBMS, but with linear scale and available on public (AWS), hosted (Rackspace, GoGrid, etc.), and private clouds

In this event, hear how the premier online job-matching service, TheLadders, chose to scale out their primary database, letting their app team focus on features and speed. Topics covered will include how to:

  • Leverage a scale-out SQL database on public and private clouds
  • Achieve fault tolerance, high availability, and reliability
  • Run OLTP and OLAP workloads on the same database
  • Develop, test, and deploy apps in AWS
  • Gain exceptional application performance and scale

3:45pm – 4:15 – Check in and welcome
4:15 – 5:00 – TheLadders case study, technology overview and Q&A
5:00 – 6:00 – Network with speakers and colleagues

TheLadders HQ
137 Varick Street, 8th Floor
New York, NY 10013

Appetizers and drinks will be served. 

As this is a limited seating, exclusive event, it is recommended that you register early.

Once we receive your registration, we’ll follow up to confirm your registration.

“Rather than experience the pain of expanding a sharded architecture, we would rather just go where we know scalability is better.”
