More Details

Amazon DynamoDB is one of the most popular NoSQL databases in the cloud for its single-digit millisecond performance and serverless architecture. With DynamoDB, engineering teams can scale their applications to 10s of trillions of requests per day without needing to capacity plan, manage software or hardware.

In this tech talk, we share how DynamoDB is an excellent solution for fast, scalable online transaction processing and, when paired with an analytics solution like Rockset, can expand to support heavily analytical data applications including recommendation engines, gaming leaderboards and customer-facing dashboards.

AWS Senior Practice Manager Rick Houlihan will share the evolution of NoSQL systems and how they were designed for transactional workloads at scale. He’ll be joined by Rockset Solution Architect David Brown who will share how Rockset enables SQL on NoSQL and opens the door for SQL search, aggregations and joins on DynamoDB data. The talk will conclude with a live demo of DynamoDB and Rockset showcasing how the joint solution meets the speed and scale requirements of applications in a completely serverless way.
