It’s a data-intensive world and your applications can only perform as fast as your data infrastructure. Building next gen applications now often require using geospatial analytics support, an advanced data pipeline and data replication. How do you incorporate these features into your app while ensuring it’s highly performant, scalable, and future-proof?

Tune into the webcast with John Piekos, VP of Engineering at VoltDB and learn about:

  • Using geospatial query support for applications that rely on location
  • Using cross data center replication to improve availability and disaster recovery, while increasing application performance for geographically-distributed workloads
  • How fast data ingestion/connections with Kafka simplify and speed application development, and improve overall system reliability

Combining an operational database with integrated processing and data pipeline features in a single system can simplify and speed-up application development, while improving overall system reliability.
