9:45 – 10:45 AM

Ginger Gilsdorf, Software Engineer, Intel

This session provides an overview of persistent memory, describes the different operating modes, and explains how Aerospike users benefit from storing the primary index on large capacity, affordable persistent memory instead of DRAM.

Benefits of Aerospike with Intel Persistent Memory include:

  • DRAM-like performance with much higher capacity
  • Data Persistence when system is powered down
  • Lower and predictable latency than NAND Flash
  • Allows “RAM index” at a fraction of the cost
  • Data in NAND for up to 10x scale improvement
  • Greater predictability
  • Significantly higher density than DRAM only

Srini Srinivasan, Chief Development Officer, Aerospike

There’s no doubt that the needs of every customer-facing business have changed and now require the ability to manage and process massive amounts of data in real time. But going from legacy infrastructure and code to modern data platforms is easier said than done, especially when organization-wide initiatives like digital transformation and customer 360 are on the table. Srini will present best practices learned from years of experience across industries and use cases to demonstrate how the right database can become a competitive advantage in the market.
