Building a real-time document data store at scale



Presented by
George Demarest, Product Marketing @ Aerospike, Noel Yuhanna, VP, Principal Analyst @ Forrester, Mario Ornelas, CEO @ ZoneTap

About this talk
Today’s popular document databases often suffer from performance and scalability challenges as document data volumes explode. The greater richness and nested structures that document data provides also make scaling and performance a challenge. Applications need to be rearchitected and tweaked in order to deliver reasonable response times when working with a terabyte of data or more.

In this session, Aerospike Director of Product Marketing, George Demarest, and guest presenter, Noel Yuhanna, VP, Principal Analyst, Forrester will identify the factors affecting performance and deployment of large-scale document stores. Topics covered include

– Profiling current document database options
– Factors affecting scale and performance while employing document data
– The most efficient and performant way to store and query document data

We’ll use the example of Zonetap, whose CEO Mario Ornelas will discuss a use case that combines IoT, geospatial, and a real-time document store to keep construction workers safe in hazardous environments. A brief overview of Aerospike Document Data Services will also be provided.
