This session kicks off the Couchbase Connect Big Data track by answering some fundamental questions about the relationship between NoSQL and Hadoop. Both of these address the “big data” challenge but they target different parts of it. We’ll get concrete about where it makes sense to deploy NoSQL versus where it makes sense to deploy Hadoop. More importantly, we’ll discuss how NoSQL and Hadoop compliment each other and why they’re stronger together.
Tony discusses Cox Automotive’s journey with Couchbase. From initially just using it for caching, through specific data storage needs and future optimizations all enabling Cox Automotive to add value for its customers.
Reliably delivering data to applications in a high performance way is where Couchbase shines, but maintaining a high-performance application is not just a job for Couchbase Server. Couchbase Server meets very stringent performance and availability needs, but to successfully deliver data at scale, all application components need to work together as a single system. For example, you need to be prepared for various edge conditions like expected “TMPFAIL”s, handling failovers, and dealing with higher latencies under load. Good thing you have the tools you need from the Couchbase SDK. In this session, Michael and Matt will show patterns for handling these kinds of scenarios and talk about some of the great failures from years of experience, how they can be prevented and demonstrate some techniques for making the entire system more reliable and able to recover faster.
Today’s innovative software is providing new ways for industrial companies to gain a competitive advantage. But harnessing that potential from scratch isn’t easy. You need to bring together device connectivity, data integration and management, data analytics, cloud, and mobility all in a way that works seamlessly together and intuitively for all the members of your business. That’s why GE created Predix. In the connected world, GE field engineers work in places where offline is the norm. This presentation will examine how the Predix Experience engineering team built a platform for building applications for the industrial workforce and how Couchbase Mobile complements GE’s Offline First approach. We will look at what Offline First means and how the platform’s offline capabilities were replaced with Couchbase Mobile in less than 90 days.
This session introduces N1QL and sets the stage for the rich selection of N1QL-related sessions at Couchbase Connect 2015. N1QL is SQL for JSON, extending the querying power of SQL with the modeling flexibility of JSON. In this session, you will get an introduction to the N1QL language, architecture, and ecosystem, and you will hear the benefits of N1QL for developers and for enterprises.
Bring your laptops! You’ll learn the process of building an app from scratch that works online and offline. Learn about reading & writing Data, modeling app data the NoSQL way, adding sync in less than 5 minutes, enabling authentication, restricting data access, and adding role based security. By the end of this session you will be able to design and build your own app with Couchbase Mobile.
We’re all familiar with modeling data the relational way. When we move to a document database we need to think about things a little differently. In this talk we’ll look how best to plan, model and maintain your data using a document database. By diving into real world case studies of Couchbase users, we’ll look at the three main things you need to know about modeling your data in a document database: document design, key design and querying.
Join this demo-filled session to learn how to deliver continuously available mission critical apps across data centers. For today’s mission critical apps, high availability is no longer a ‘nice to have’ but is essential. Downtime and data loss is unacceptable, resulting in lost revenue. In this session we will cover the wide array of high availability and disaster recovery features available in Couchbase Server.
Gannett is one of America’s largest media companies. Gannett provides full national coverage through 93 local and national sites that reach 96 million total monthly digital visitors. Gannett’s total mobile reach alone hits 31 million unique monthly visitors. To support our various products we needed our stories, videos and photos to flow through our publishing system and be retrievable in a matter of seconds. In this talk we will discuss how Gannett moved away from SQL Server to Couchbase for storing updating and retrieving millions of documents. We will also discuss how we use Couchbase to power our User Generated Content. Finally we will also touch on our future plans to integrate N1QL into our new Authoring and Scheduling systems.
