Future of Databases: Combining Operational and Analytical Data at Massive Scale

A lot of things are deemed a “game-changer” these days, but distributed SQL actually deserves the moniker. Distributed SQL databases are relational databases engineered with a distributed architecture to scale out on commodity hardware, on premises or in the cloud - without any trade-offs.

In this session, you will get a quick look at MariaDB's distributed SQL implementation, Xpand, and how it takes database elasticity, scale and high availability to the next level.
