Achieving scalability and elasticity is a huge challenge for data architects. Data just isn't small, neat, and orderly anymore. While all database vendors say they scale big, what if you want to scale to handle over 6,000 queries per second? Once you are processing data at this speed, how do you handle bottlenecks exhibited under sustained or bursting loads? If you are running into these issues, it might be because you are adding unnecessary steps in the process.
In this webcast, join Greg Meddles, Sr. Principal Consultant for MarkLogic, to learn how complex applications and systems must be designed to scale horizontally — both at the software and the hardware level. This concept of "scaling through parallelism" is crucial for performance. Greg will also discuss how to maximize your use of data models you already have, to avoid converting them for every individual query.
