Cassandra conference sessions

10:40am–11:20am Thursday, 07/28/2011
A look at the state of data storage, management & analysis, from SQL to NOSQL, “NewSQL” and beyond. I will explain why the core premises of data management have changed; tell some of the tales of success and failure I have collected on the topic; share some counterintuitive rules-of-thumb about the sometimes mind-blowing, sometimes nerve-wrecking reality of life with an alternative datastore.
4:20pm–5:00pm Tuesday, 07/26/2011
You've heard about NoSQL. You've heard about the Cloud. What if you could spin up something like HBase in a couple minutes and try out both at the same time. By the end of this session, you'll learn how to do just that, in a way portable across several NoSQL projects and dozens of compute clouds.
4:10pm–4:50pm Thursday, 07/28/2011
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. This is part survey, part critique of the various Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation and Durability models available from various modern databases and data stores used in modern Web and Cloud environments.
11:30am–12:10pm Thursday, 07/28/2011
This panel discussion features the key innovators in the NoSQL space.
