Splice Machine to Take Stage at Strata Conference + Hadoop World 2014


New York, NY (PRWEB) October 15, 2014

Splice Machine, provider of the only Hadoop RDBMS, today announced that it has been chosen by Strata Conference + Hadoop World organizers to host a session on Big Data. Splice Machine co-founder and CEO, Monte Zweben, will give a presentation at the conference on Thursday, October 16th at 4:15pm, titled, “Unseating the Giants: How Big Data is Causing Big Problems for Traditional RDBMSs.” The presentation will examine the factors that have led to the shift away from traditional database solutions, and highlight three examples of scale-out databases transforming businesses. The Company will also exhibit at Booth 246 and be discussing the latest customer use cases of its database.

In its third consecutive year at the event, Splice Machine will be showcasing how scale-out databases are viable alternatives to legacy databases, such as Oracle®, IBM DB2®, and MySQL™. The Company also will showcase customer successes that highlight the faster query speeds and 10-20x price/performance improvements its database delivers when replacing traditional RDBMSs in the enterprise.

“Traditional RDBMSs like Oracle can support real-time operational applications, but they lack the ability to scale-out affordably. Hadoop and NoSQL databases provides cost-effective scalability, but they require application rewrites.” said Zweben. “Customers are demanding the best of both worlds. At Splice Machine, we deliver full operational database functionality for mixed workloads without expensive, specialized hardware or application rewrites.”

The O’Reilly Strata Conference + Hadoop World event is being held at the Javits Center in New York, NY, October 15th – October 17th, 2014. It is the largest conference of its kind with nearly 200 sessions on key industry topics.
