Confio Software Hosts Live Webinar that Demystifies NoSQL and Big Data for Oracle DBAs


Boulder, Colo., Oct. 1, 2013Confio Software will explore what the rise of NoSQL and Big Data means for Oracle DBAs in a free, live webinar on Thursday, Oct. 10 at 12:00 p.m. ET/4:00 p.m. GMT. As NoSQL and Big Data continue to gain momentum, many Oracle DBAs are left questioning whether relational database management systems (RDBMS) can handle the performance, scalability, and availability demands of a wired world.
In this webinar, Oracle Database expert and NoCOUG Journal editor Iggy Fernandez will demystify NoSQL and Big Data for Oracle DBAs and survey the NoSQL product landscape. Fernandez will also discuss the following:

  • The differing approaches of Internet giants Amazon and eBay, one of whom completely abandoned relational technology and one of whom continues to use it
  • How the perceived deficiencies of relational technology are actually a result of deliberate choices made by the relational movement in its early years
  • Why the relational camp needs to revisit these choices if it wants to compete with NoSQL and Big Data technologies in the areas of performance, scalability, and availability

Oracle DBAs interested in attending this free Confio webinar can register here.
“I still believe in the superiority of relational technology,” said Fernandez. “However the relational camp must get its act together if it wants to compete with the NoSQL camp in the areas of performance, scalability, and availability.”
Iggy Fernandez is an Oracle Database expert and the editor of NoCOUG Journal. His specialties are SQL tuning and database tuning and he has immersed himself in NoSQL with the goal of explaining and demystifying it.
