On-Demand Webinar: Beyond Jurassic NoSQL: New Designs for a New World

We live in an age of rapid innovation, but our infrastructure shows signs of rust and old age. Under the shiny exterior of our new technology, some old and dusty infrastructure is carrying a weight it was never designed to hold. This is glaringly true in the database world, which remains dominated by databases architected for a different age. These legacy NoSQL databases were designed for a different (nascent) cloud, different hardware, different bottlenecks, and even different programming models.

On-Demand Webinar: Observability Best Practices for Your Cloud DBaaS

Join this webinar to learn how observability best practices apply to distributed databases and see how they are put into practice on a sample application.

On-Demand Webinar: Eliminating Volatile Latencies: Inside Rakuten’s NoSQL Migration

Patience with Apache Cassandra’s volatile latencies was wearing thin at Rakuten, a global online retailer serving 1.5B worldwide members. The Rakuten Catalog Platform team architected an advanced data platform – with Cassandra at its core – to normalize, validate, transform, and store product data for their global operations. However, while the business was expecting this platform to support extreme growth with exceptional end-user experiences, the team was battling Cassandra’s instability, inconsistent performance at scale, and maintenance overhead. So, they decided to migrate.
