Global road show edition
This year marked the fifth annual Aerospike Summit. As we navigate the balance of virtual and in-person events, we opted for a hybrid format for Summit 2022. We wanted to accommodate global audiences, but also enable our customers and prospects to network together in person – one of the most valuable experiences at the Aerospike Summit. We began with a full-day virtual summit before diving into regional road show events around six cities worldwide: Boston, New York City, London, San Francisco, Bangalore, and Tel Aviv, with the final event taking place last week.
Our primary objective with these road shows was to bring our developer community together to share insights from real-world customer use cases and encourage open discussion around harnessing the capabilities of a real-time data platform in today’s world of on-demand and instant gratification. These in-person single-day events offered opportunities for our community to learn from one another, share best practices, and discuss critical challenges within their database infrastructure. Each road show featured compelling keynotes from customers and partners, in-depth technical sessions on Aerospike Database 6 from subject matter experts, a hands-on Scale Warriors workshop sponsored by AWS, and a networking reception.
