The growth in interactive Internet and mobile applications is driving a new data challenge—velocity—where real-time responses are based on insights extracted from volumes of big data. In this 10-minute talk, Brian Bulkowski, Aerospike founder & CTO, will list 10 reasons why in-memory and a new generation of distributed databases, NoSQL key-value stores, are the killer data solution for achieving velocity within every enterprise. He will look at the democratizing effect of open source in-memory NoSQL key-value stores that can achieve 1 million transactions per second, whether running on a single $5,000 server or on a single Amazon instance at a cost of $1.68 per hour. Additionally, he will share real-world examples of companies using these data technologies to scale from startups to industry leaders, including AppNexus, which was founded in 2007, recently earned a $1.2 billion valuation, and now manages 90 billion ad impressions per day.
