Description:

The cloud marketplace - as well as the developers building applications & services atop it -- require flexible options on deployments and platform. They need the ability to provision databases across multiple vendors and platforms. These are the requirements of today's mobile application ecosystem.
This presentation will cover these fundamental challenges to modern application design and illustrate how specifically NoSQL databases like Cloudant mitigates the risks. In particular, we'll cover why NoSQL databases excel at offline application data access, cross data-center and device replication, and how these techniques nicely complement traditional RDBMS use cases.
