NVMe for DBAs

Since flash storage hit the market a few years ago, storage technology has been innovating at an ever increasing rate. With new technologies like NVMe already out, and the next round of fabrics and 3DXpoint/Optane becoming production ready soon, database architects have a lot more to pay attention to and many more options for scaling or consolidating platforms. In this webinar we will cover:

  • The emerging technologies influencing database platforms (NVMe, fabrics, 3DXpoint/Optane, etc)
  • The effect of NVMe systems on database architecture & design
  • Database and data processing use cases for NVMe systems & 3DXpoint/Optane. (From existing SMP workloads like OLTP & analytics to emerging MPP technologies like AI, ML & IoT)
  • How to test NVMe systems (it’s not just about the average latency anymore)
  • How to see value per database & data processing workload

We will review the state of infrastructure through the eyes of DBAs, database architects and systems engineers and help them understand what they need to know for their current platforms and future platform design.
