Database Architecture and Scaling Strategies, In the Cloud & on the Rack

 Clustrix Webinar

In this webinar, Robbie Mihayli, VP of Engineering at Clustrix, explores how to set up a SQL RDBMS architecture that scales out and is both elastic and consistent while simultaneously delivering fault tolerance and ACID compliance. He also covers how data gets distributed in this architecture, how the query processor works, how rebalancing happens, and how other architectural elements function. Examples cited include cloud deployments and e-commerce use-cases. Watch the replay and learn:

  • Five RDBMS scaling strategies along with their trade offs
  • The importance of having no single point of failure for OLTP (fault tolerance)
  • The vagaries of the cloud and how it impacts using an RDBMS in the cloud
