Slides:   1-PDF 

There are way too many choices available for the database tier of the modern application, particularly in the cloud. In this session, we review how is it that we got here as an industry and discuss some practical recommendations to make sense of all these options. We will discuss Rackspace’s vision for Data-as-a-Service, and provide a few key questions that could help you complement your technical analysis when choosing a database service. Along the way, we will also discuss parts of the portfolio of data services available at Rackspace, including SQL, MongoDB, Redis and Hadoop-based solutions.

This session is sponsored by Rackspace
