Advancements in application architectures, development processes, and storage have enabled organizations to take advantage of cloud benefits such as agility, elasticity, and scale-out across most layers of the infrastructure stack. But one key element - the database tier - has remained stubbornly difficult to modernize. Often, as organizations move toward container and cloud-based environments, they end up leaving their database, their SQL skillsets, expectations of transactional consistency, and sometimes even their precious data behind.
To address this problem, a new class of database - the elastic SQL database - has emerged. These solutions combine the ACID guarantees and SQL interface on which applications rely, while also allowing dynamic capacity management, continuous availability, multi-datacenter operation, and radical operational simplicity.
Learn how to take advantage of this technology to optimize your application for fast transactional responsiveness, continuous availability, and full-active database utilization, even across multiple clouds, data centers, or hybrid environments.
This presentation covers:
• Why the need for an elastic SQL database
• What can you do with one and best use cases for an elastic SQL database
• Examples of how an elastic SQL database works
• Benefits of optimizing/configuring for:
• fast application data access
• continuous availability
• deployment across data centers
