We are excited to announce that we’ve been named as one of ten finalists selected for the startup showcase at the O’Reilly Strata “Making Data Work” Conference at the end of this month in Santa Clara, California. The startup showcase will be held on February 29th, starting at 6:30 pm.
The conference offers a great overview of the big data space, with tracks on Data Science, Business and Industry, Visualization and Interfaces, Hadoop Applied, Hadoop Tech, Policy and Privacy, and Domain Data. With all of the “NoSQL” buzz and sessions at the show (Hadoop gets two tracks!), we are glad to be able to attend as a representative of the “NewSQL” community. We’ll be showing just how much MySQL, with the right storage engine, can scale to take on Big Data while giving up none of the power of ACID, familiar SQL interfaces, rich indexes, high insertion rates, and flexible schema.
If you will be there, please stop by to say hello! And please vote for us too (what can we say, it’s an election year all around).
