Description

After seeing Brian Bulkowski's interview on Silicon Angle at Oracle Open World, I connected with him and his co-founder, Srini Srinivasan, to find out more about the Aerospike database.

Four years ago, Brian and Srini recognized that the world was going to move to flash storage and DRAM, and they set out to design a database that would take full advantage of this. The era of Hadoop had already begun, but there was nothing yet to handle fast transactions at scale.

Flash forward to the present, Brian has a simple claim: Aerospike has one of the fastest databases in the world.

In his talk, Brian will discuss the class of problems he wanted to solve, the hurdles involved, and the current state of the art.

About Brian Bulkowski:
Brian Bulkowski, founder and CTO of Aerospike Inc., leads development of the Aerospike flash-native NoSQL database and has developed the open source Aerospike Certification Tool, which enables companies to benchmark how well solid-state drives (SSDs) process database transactions. Brian has 20-plus years experience designing, developing and tuning networking systems and high-performance Web-scale infrastructures. He founded Aerospike after learning first hand, the scaling limitations of sharded MySQL systems at Aggregate Knowledge. As director of performance at this media intelligence SaaS company, Brian led the team in building and operating a clustered recommendation engine. Prior to Aggregate Knowledge, Brian was a founding member of the digital TV team at Navio Communications and chief architect of Cable Solutions at Liberate Technologies where he built the high-performance embedded networking stack and the Internet-scale broadcast server infrastructure. Before Liberate, Brian was a lead engineer at Novell, where he was responsible for the AppleTalk stack for Netware 3 and 4.

This should be a good talk. Hope you can join us.
