Nosql conference sessions

5:15pm–6:00pm Wednesday, 04/13/2011
With contemporary web applications, data is never isolated to one store. Memcached has long been a partner to MySQL; now Membase, a persistent, replicated, clustered memcached-protocol-compatible datastore is used alongside MySQL for simple, fast key-value access. This session will dispel the idea of needing to choose between SQL or NoSQL, showing how you can be both rich and fast.
5:15pm–6:00pm Tuesday, 04/12/2011
MongoDB -- from "humongous" -- is an open source, non-relational, document-oriented database.
2:00pm–3:00pm Wednesday, 04/13/2011
Apache CouchDB implements a reliable storage engine, webserver, and HTTP application server environment, in under 20k lines of Erlang and JavaScript source code (with an additional X lines of test code.) I'll show 3 related examples that strike at the core of CouchDB's simplicity: The storage engine, the incremental map reduce views, and replication.
3:05pm–3:50pm Wednesday, 04/13/2011
At Twitter, we have gone through many iterations of storage systems as we have coped with tremendous growth. We have been able to solve many general distributed storage problems in a framework named Gizzard. This has allowed us to quickly and safely develop specialized components for the parts of Twitter that can no longer handle the scale at which they are required to operate.
4:25pm–5:10pm Tuesday, 04/12/2011
HBase is an open source column store built on top of Hadoop. In this 45 minute session you will get a brief introduction into the design of HBase, and the underlying framework along with some usage examples.
4:25pm–5:10pm Tuesday, 04/12/2011
The OpenStack project was launched last summer by Rackspace, NASA, and a number of other cloud technology leaders in an effort to build a fully-open cloud computing platform. It is a collection of scalable, secure, standards-based projects currently consisting of OpenStack Compute and OpenStack Object Storage. This session will introduce the projects, principles behind it, and how to get started.
11:55am–12:40pm Wednesday, 04/13/2011
While MySQL and MongoDB often fight over the same deployment, there are many cases where MySQL and MongoDB should be used in conjunction. They each excel at different things, so its important to understand when to use one or the other, and how to make them work well together. Eliot Horowitz is the CTO and Co-Founder of 10gen, the creators of MongoDB
2:00pm–3:00pm Wednesday, 04/13/2011
GitHub's history with MySQL and what we've built off of it.
4:25pm–5:10pm Wednesday, 04/13/2011
Presentation: NoSQL with MySQL Presentation [PPTX]
The “NoSQL” movement is typically related to key-value systems and, lacking a formal definition, can be interpreted many ways. NoSQL discussions that focus on availability and scalability highlight ACID issues but not really SQL. The key-value systems can be built many ways and relational databases as a back end is a serious contender.
3:05pm–3:50pm Wednesday, 04/13/2011
Presentation: Redis to the Rescue_ Presentation [PDF]
As an in-memory database, Redis offers an order-of-magnitude reduction in query roundtrip latency, but also introduces new challenges. This case study recounts how we successfully scaled up two Facebook games with Redis, and what we learned on the way.
9:00am–12:30pm Monday, 04/11/2011
Back by popular demand we have the Memcached tutorial. Come learn about what is new and exciting in the world of Memcached.
11:55am–12:40pm Thursday, 04/14/2011
People talk about NoSQL in the context of distributed cloud-based web applications, but what if your application needs to be deployed throughout rural Africa, with limited computer resources, intermittent power, and above all, extremely unreliable internet? This talk discusses the features of CouchDB that make it uniquely suited for developing world health applications.
5:15pm–6:00pm Wednesday, 04/13/2011
Most of high scale web applications use memcached + MySQL or NoSQL. It is said that NoSQL performs better than MySQL for simple access patterns such as primary key lookups. But things are changing. DeNA recently developed HandlerSocket plugin, a MySQL plugin speaking NoSQL protocols. We got 750,000+ qps in our benchmarks and runs pretty well on our production. We'd like to share our experiences.
