Scaling a relational database can be a complex task, but it doesn’t need to be. A DistributedSQL database, such as CockroachDB, delivers completely automated, effortless, and elastic cloud scale while guaranteeing transactions. It is a database that reimagines the execution and storage layers while still allowing you, the developer, to still use familiar SQL syntax.

In the livestream with will walk through how to never shard another database and gain effortless scale as well as:

  • Horizontal scale of a database without sharding
  • How active-active endpoints eliminate downtime
  • Online schema changes and rolling upgrades
  • Anchor rows of data to a location to improve performance

This is going to be a free-flowing, nerd-sniping conversation in which the audience is encouraged to participate. So bring all your questions for Tim and Jim to answer.
