TITLE: The Future of Databases is not a Database

ABSTRACT:
We all get excited about the next technical capability. In-memory - cool; scalable - even cooler; vector based execution, real-time code generation, etc etc. But do these really tackle the most important problems that will lead the next generation of databases?

In this presentation Ori will present FoundationDB - a fault-tolerant, scalable and transactional K/V store, and the languages he and his team are building on top of it like SQL, document and Graph. He will then explore how this platform can serve not only today's applications, but also serve as a basis for future data management solutions.

BIO:
Ori Herrnstadt is leading the Cambridge office of FoundationDB, building languages like SQL on top of the FoundationDB K/V store. Previously, Ori founded and served as CEO of Akiban. He has been involved in developing large-scale operational database systems since his days in the Israeli Army.
