By by relational database and ACID-transactions: An introduction into BASE and NoSQL by the example Windows Azure Storage Services
Zürich, 21. Juni 2011 - 23. Juni 2011
In view of scalability and availability, huge companies like Amazon, Google or eBay don’t use relational databases for their web-applications anymore. Instead of that and instead of ACID-transactions, they use approaches like NoSQL (Not only SQL) and BASE, which stands for basically available, soft state, eventually consistent. This session shows why those concepts improve scalability and availability and how Azure Storage Services implement them.
