Is your legacy database infrastructure struggling to meet the demand of customer Service Level Agreements? If you, like many companies, are discovering that your infrastructure is not robust enough to deal with the speed and scale required of today's Internet-scale applications, it may be time to consider a switch to NoSQL storage.
Changing storage systems can be a daunting process and, with all the buzz surrounding NoSQL, it can be difficult to know where to start. As a Solutions Architect at Thumbtack Technology, Anton Yazovskiy has helped many companies through the selection and deployment process of NoSQL technologies. In this webinar, Anton will explain the main advantages of NoSQL and common use cases in which the migration to NoSQL makes sense. You will learn key questions that you should ask before migration, as well as important differences in data modeling and architectural approaches. Finally, you will take a look at a typical application based on Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) and will migrate it to NoSQL step-by-step.
Key topics that will be covered:
> Why you would want to migrate to NoSQL
> Conceptual differences between RDBMS and NoSQL
> Data modeling and architectural best practices
> "I got it. But what exactly I need to do?" - Practical migration steps
