Presentation: "NewSQL Database for New Real-time Applications"

Track: Navigating the BigData Ocean / Time: Tuesday 14:05 - 15:05 / Location: Room 104 / 105

New real-time applications require databases that can process larger volumes of transactions than what is possible with current market-leading relational databases.

More recent NoSQL databases are able to scale out so that they can handle very large volumes of data and very large volumes of transactions on the data. However, they cannot guarantee consistency. While this is acceptable for some types of data such as social network bulletin boards, it does not work for most business critical data such as stock quantities or money. We will describe a NewSQL database, which processes millions of ACID-compliant transactions per second on a single machine and fully ensures consistency.
