WORKSHOP: Real-Time Big Data in a Distributed SQL System

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

SQL is the language of choice for relational database management systems but it is traditionally slow and does not scale past a single machine. In this session, learn how to horizontally scale your data and workload on a distributed SQL system powered by commodity hardware for high performance real-time analytics. We will also cover how to take advantage of distributed parallel processing by writing parallelizable SQL queries. Attend this session to learn: 
-How to design schemas that take advantage of the distributed system.
-What types of queries can be run extremely efficiently in a distributed system
-Tricks to manipulate complex queries to avoid shuttling around data in a distributed system
