View a Complimentary Live Webinar Sponsored by Cockroach Labs

Many companies have mission-critical data and applications that require high availability and continuity of operations. Distributed SQL is an evolution of the relational database that introduces, amongst other things, the ability to keep applications online all the time and help maintain business continuity. 

In this session you will learn about the key architectural differences between modern distributed SQL databases and their incumbent counterparts: legacy relational databases. We’ll take a deep-dive exploration into the internals of the database, exploring the following, and more:

  • What are the 5 requirements of a distributed SQL database?

  • How a distributed SQL database uses KV at the storage layer to effectively distribute data.

  • How distributed SQL automates scale and guarantees an always-on resilience.

  • How to tie data to a location to help with performance and data privacy.

We’ll wrap up the discussion by highlighting the kinds of workloads we see running on distributed SQL in production today. We’d love for you to join us and see how distributed SQL works!
