Discussing Aerospike at DeveloperWeek 2015

Aerospike's developer discusses how the NoSQL database recently moved its IP to open source at DeveloperWeek 2015.

As part of our continued coverage of DeveloperWeek 2015 in San Francisco, TechTarget and TheServerSide have been seeking out some of the most interesting experts and thought leaders who are presenting on some of the most innovative technologies and topics, be it cloud, mobile, storage or even the Internet of Things.

One of my jobs here are Aerospike is to think outside of the box and create new types of applications.

Dash Desai,
a Developer Evangelist at Aerospike Inc.

One of the more interesting thought leaders we tracked down was Dash Desai, a developer evangelist at Aerospike Inc. Aerospike is a NoSQL database that has been around for quite a few years but recently made headlines by taking its int​ellectual property to the masses by going open source. The other thing Aerospike is known for is their lightning-fast performance, as their software is built to achieve incredible performance when hosted in memory or on solid-state drives.

As one might imagine, Aerospike can and is being used for a host of traditional NoSQL based problems, be it session stores or managing user preferences, but Desai isn't happy with non-relational databases simply solving the same set of problems over and over again. "One of my jobs here at Aerospike is to think outside of the box and create new types of applications." And that's important because there are so many potential uses for low-latency, high performance, non-relational databases, and it's about time the industry tapped into this market and found some non-traditional uses.

To hear more about Aerospike, Dash Desai and his presentation at DeveloperWeek 2015 on the topic of Aerospike, performance and avoiding dangerous race conditions in your applications, take a listen to the accompanying audio interview with Dash.
