Reminder Subject: TALK: Designing for distribution: the architecture behind NuoDB

Abstract: There are many approaches to making a database scale-out in modern deployments. Most of these, however, are based on dropping traditional features like consistency or replicating services designed with scale-up deployment in mind. This may help to solve pragmatic problems but trades-off desired development and operation features. This talk presents NuoDB, a database designed with distribution at its core. Diving into the architecture will highlight how it solves common use-cases today and what problems it can be used to address in the future.

Seth Proctor is the CTO at NuoDB. He has nearly 20 years of experience focusing on distributed computing, networking, security and other fun
systems problems. Before NuoDB he worked for Nokia and before that Sun Microsystems, tackling large-scale systems and understanding not just
how to make technology scale, but how to do it in such a way that users can scale with it.
