In-memory databases here and now: How to migrate and what to expect

Plummeting RAM prices and the massive throughput requirements of big data make in-memory databases incredibly attractive. Processing enormous data sets in a fraction of the time it normally takes sounds like a dream come true, but in-memory technology is relatively untested, and some of the more extreme examples – such as SAP HANA – are a complete paradigm shift from traditional RDBMS products.

With technology so new, a complete rip-and-replace is reckless, but so is waiting for your competition to beat you to the punch. This webinar will evaluate adoption and migration strategies that will allow businesses to take advantage of the speed and scale of in-memory computing without risking everything by going all-in.
