VSTH13 A Practical Look at the NOSQL and Big Data Hullabaloo


1:30pm - 2:45pm

Level: Introductory

Sam Bisbee

Director of Technical Business Development


A lot of companies are checking the NOSQL conversation box these days but end up getting confused by the sheer amount of information that is available on the Internet. We are going to level set the conversation by reviewing what questions you should be asking, covering a bunch of misconceptions, and review real users' case studies. Additionally we are going to review how different NOSQL solutions differentiate themselves and what they are built for. All of this will be capped off with Cloudant's views on what this NOSQL and big data hullabaloo is all about, making sure to cover the always interesting "Tales from Production".

You will learn:

  • What NOSQL and big data are, and how they impact your application development
  • A basic understanding of the differences between different common NOSQL solutions
  • How Cloudant answers the scalability and big data issues
