How do you plan a roadmap for moving from a legacy data architecture to a cloud-enabled data grid? In this article, we will offer a pragmatic, three-stage approach. At SpringOne-2012, the “Effective design patterns with NewSQL” session (see presentation embedded below) generated a lot of interest. (Thank you to everyone who joined us!) Jags Ramnarayan and I discussed problems with legacy RDBMS systems, NewSQL driving principles, SQLFire architecture, application design patterns as well as data consistency and reliability.
We went deep into vFabric SQLFire which is a pragmatic solution that addresses these data challenges:
- How do I architect my data tier for very high concurrent workloads?
- How do I achieve predictability both for data access response time and availability?
- How do I distribute data efficiently and real time to multiple data centers (and to external clouds)?
- How do I process these large quantities of data in an efficient manner to allow for better real-time decision-making?
