VMworld is less than a week away. If you're going to be at the show and want to learn more about making data extremely fast and very scalable you've got several ways to do it, through a session, through a lab, and also by stopping by the Cloud Application Platform section of the VMware booth.
#CAP1942 "Managing High Performance Data with SQLFire": See SQLFire's Chief Architect, Jags Ramnarayan talk about the design decisions that make SQLFire a highly scalable, distributed NewSQL database. Session is Wednesday August 30 at 1:00 p.m. Don't forget to pre-register.
#HOL12 "Optimizing Data Access for Your Cloud Infrastructure": You'd never guess by looking at it but this lab actually features SQLFire as well as other VMware database technologies. I caught a quick preview of this lab last week and one of the cool things you'll see in this lab include how SQLFire can effortlessly replicate data across slow internet connections so you can have ultra-fast database access in multiple geographic locations. Not only that but you'll see just some of the advantages of being in-memory when it comes to ultra-fast reads and writes. What more could you ask for in under the space of one hour?
This year we've assigned hashtags to all our sessions and labs so if yuo've got comments, feedback or just want to meet up with like-minded people, be sure to add the relevant hashtag to your tweet. See you at the show!
