Looking for flexibility and scalability? You might want to sign up for a document database

But you might not want to go it alone


Webinar Choosing a database used to be easy, mainly because the choice of underlying models was, to put it mildly, limited.

Now, developers have the blessing, and curse, of a choice of database types, each of which lend themselves to particular applications. AWS offers over 15, for example.

But when it comes to modern, digital first applications, which demand rapid development and high performance, the best fit is often a NoSQL document database. These can give devs the ability to work with flexible schemas and a scale out architecture.

But that very flexibility and scalability can present management problems, particularly when it comes to ensuring you really do realise the scalability and availability you want, and balancing the cost of ownership against performance.

So, how do you decide whether a document database fits the bill for you? And, just as importantly, what are the next steps in putting in place a system that allows you to take full advantage of the technology?

Well you can start by joining our upcoming webinar, Modernise Applications with Document Databases, on November 10 at 0900 PT (1200 ET, 1700 GMT.)

Our own Tim Phillips, pretty scalable and flexible himself, will be joined by AWS’s Karthik Vijayraghavan, who will discuss how the cloud giant’s DocumentDB ticks all these boxes.

They’ll take a deep dive into the requirements of modern applications, and where document databases are particularly appropriate. They’ll also discuss how DocumentDB presents a fully managed alternative, which can scale to meet mission critical workloads.

And they’ll talk through exactly how to plan and execute a migration to DocumentDB.

That transition may be challenging but joining this online broadcast isn’t. Just head here, drop in your details, and we’ll make sure you’re gently reminded on the day.
