June’s live Cloud Wars Expo event featured dozens of industry leaders allowing the Acceleration Economy team access to the inner workings of the greatest growth market the world has ever known.
If you missed the Expo or just want to catch up on sessions you were not able to attend, then you’re in luck. We recorded more than 40 hours of education sessions from the event, which are available for free to Acceleration Economy subscribers. We’re also previewing the content in this series of Moments, which feature highlights from each session.
In this Cloud Wars Expo Moment, Peter Guagenti, Chief Marketing Officer of Cockroach Labs, defines how the Cockroach Labs cloud database can support customers as they venture into new markets.
00:16 — With the Cockroach Labs CockroachDB cloud database, Guagenti says “you can lose a server, an availability zone, or data center” and the application will still run and offer customers the same positive experience without losing any data.
00:35 — Cockroach Labs stands out in the distributed SQL space because of its daily use of data locality — this means being able to expand in new markets.
01:11 — Cockroach Labs can alleviate customers of the problems that come with entering a new market due to the way it builds microservices and distributed databases. The company provides customers with a single local database that lives anywhere in the world and locks data to the location.
01:29 — Guagenti says that distributed SQL is the future because it’s a node-based architecture that has a clean separation of storage and computing and still behaves as a single local database.
