Meetups Announced

It’s Meetup season for NuoDB this Fall and our diehard fans have spoken! If you haven’t had the chance to make it to one of our awesome underground NuoDB Boston Enthusiasts events yet, not to worry, the opportunity will soon resurface itself yet again.

September Lineup

NuoFusion: Introducing NuoDB to ColdFusion w/ Barry Morris (Online Meetup)

WHEN: Thurs. September 27, 12:00pm (US ET)

WHERE: Online

WHY: In this talk, NuoDB CEO and Co-Founder Barry Morris will introduce the NuoDB cloud database product and show how ColdFusion and NuoDB can work together to help ColdFusion developers deliver web applications that easily scale out to hundreds of thousands of users. NuoDB makes elastic scalability effortless without compromising on the things developers have come to depend on like standard SQL, ACID transactions, and popular ORM tools like Hibernate. Join us to learn more about the NuoDB product, how it works and how it can help support your web-scale applications. Click here to register for this event.

October Lineup

Machine Learning + NuoDB

WHEN: Tuesday, October 9, 2012, 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM (US ET)

WHERE: New York, NY

WHY: Cloud computing, faster machines, and the proliferation of mathematics and programming have made machine learning accessible to almost anyone. However, once all the analytics and the number crunching are done, you still need a place to store, access, and report on your results. NuoDB is an elastically scalable SQL database that can take full advantage of the cloud and help you organize your results not just for machines but for the people behind the machines as well. To reserve your seat today, make sure to log on to our Machine Learning event page and register today!

Resolving the Cloud Database Crisis:
A Deep Dive into the NuoDB Architecture

WHEN: Monday, October 29, 2012 / 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (US ET)

WHERE: New York, NY

WHY: We are in the midst of a database crisis.

Traditional databases have the power of SQL and the reliability of ACID guarantees. But… they don’t scale on modern data center architectures. To mitigate the failure of traditional SQL solutions for cloud deployment, developers are forced to perform “unnatural acts” to their databases – e.g., buying bigger and bigger hardware, sharding, caching, master/slave replication, and database schema de-normalization.

What about NoSQL databases? They have been designed to scale. But… they put an undue burden on the developer to program into the application the powerful querying features normally found in SQL. Plus, NoSQL software solutions lack ACID guarantees that are commonplace in SQL database technology today. In either case, the database becomes a bottleneck to successfully scaling out/in in the cloud without making costly compromises.

This cloud dilemma has forced the need for a complete redesign of database management systems. This need is becoming more pressing as new web-scale apps are developed and existing databases are moved to the cloud. Attend this session (not a company sales pitch!) to see what a cloud database must be and to understand where SQL is headed. An introductory discussion of the crisis will be followed by a demonstration of the scalability, simplicity and reliability of a true 21st century elastically scalable database.
