The maiden Distributed SQL Summit is scheduled to take place on September 20, 2019, in San Jose, California. It is going to be hosted by YugaByte with the motive to bring together industry leaders to share knowledge on the distributed SQL approach. The event will invite the professionals to share the best practices and technical knowledge on the subject. And the procedures to build, deploy, and scale distributed SQL systems in the cloud will be discussed in an elaborate manner.
Although distributed SQL databases are highly used all across the world, these databases have always faced the scalability problem since their introduction. Most of these databases were designed to operate on a single hardware node and this introduced the scalability issue with distributed SQL databases. While the introduction of NoSQL helped to improve the scalability in databases, it didn’t involve using SQL-based method to make requests which led to compatibility problems. Students learning DBMS from any PL SQL tutorial will get to learn new things about the distributed database from this event.
The use of distributed SQL databases will allow users to use traditional SQL queries and will lead to compatibility as well as scalability. It is the power of SQL in today’s time which has led to people using this database in the environment where NoSQL is advancing at an enormous rate. In this summit, various renowned industry speakers such as Jeff Rothschild (former VP of infrastructure of Facebook), Sailesh Krishnamurthy (GM at Amazon Aurora), Sumedh Pathak (from Microsoft Azure), and Karthik Ranganathan (YugaByte co-founder and CTO) will be present to share their thoughts.
