Building a low latency, high throughput database that can handle big data AND linearly scale is not an easy task as most databases allow either scale or speed.

In this seminar we will get to know the Aerospike NoSQL Database, an enterprise distributed primary key database solution which allows building web-scale (peta-scale) applications with sub millisecond performance.

Attendees will gain a firm foundation in Aerospike database architecture, basic terms, how it works and why it is widely used in mission critical applications.

Attendees will also learn the ‘magic’ behind the Aerospike database and its ability to handle small, medium and even Petabyte scale application data, while still guarantying predictable performance and SLAs of sub-millisecond latencies.

In addition, attendees will learn from best practices which data modeling and design patterns can be used with the Aerospike database, how Aerospike DevOps is different and how easy and simple it is to run it on either cloud or on-premise environments.

This seminar will include real-life examples, live demonstrations and a customer success story.

Who Should Attend

  • Software Architects for big-data and large-scale solutions
  • Developers with experience with NoSQL key-value/document store solutions
  • DBAs and DevOps for NoSQL solutions


Previous experience with NoSQL is a MUST.
