Presentation: Databases for the Cloud more Short Talks

Track: Databases for the Cloud / Time: Thursday 15:50 - 16:40 / Location: Millennium B

More and more databases crop up every year, and it can be difficult to navigate and filter through all the possibly options. Previously, once SQL was chosen it was a matter of finding out which provider to use. These days, we first need to find out if we are going for SQL, a key-value store, a document database or something completely different. And once that's chosen, what system should we use?

This talk aims at presenting some current cloud friendly databases and briefly present their data model, strengths and weaknesses.
