Elasticity is a key characteristic of public, private and hybrid clouds. Virtual machines can be spun up and spun down at a moment’s notice. But how do databases behave in clouds? What does it take to make a database or a data store fully elastic? In his keynote presentation, Marten discusses the various approaches to managing data in the cloud and the main vendors of data solutions for the cloud.
