Nosh Petigara on Big Table, SimpleDB, CouchDB, MongoDB and more at GIDS 2010

Great Indian Developer Summit 2010 – Gold Standard for India's IT Professional Ecosystem

Bangalore, January 22, 2010: As more web developers strive to make their applications scalable we see a shift away from the traditional LAMP stack towards technologies built with a focus on scaling. As part of this shift, a new approach to data storage for the web is needed – the traditional RDBMS are not suited to many of the problems that appear in large scale web applications. Fortunately, a large number of alternatives to the RDBMS have sprung up, each with different goals and approaches to the problem of scalability. Nosh Petigara is coming this summer to India's biggest summit for the software developer ecosystem - Great Indian Developer Summit (http://www.developersummit.com/) to provide a glimpse at some of the reasons that non-relational database systems have become popular recently, and what that means for web developers. It also summarizes some of these systems that have begun to make waves in the web ecosystem, including Big Table, SimpleDB, CouchDB, MongoDB and more. The focus will be on how these systems differ from a traditional RDBMS and on how they differ from each other. We will also examine the problem domains that non-relational database systems (and those discussed in particular) excel at.


Nosh Petigara is Director of Product Strategy at 10gen, the company that sponsors and provides commercial support for the open source project MongoDB. Prior to 10gen, Nosh headed product management for OATSystems, a company that delivers RFID-enabled solutions for retailers, consumer product companies, and industrial manufacturers. Nosh is an MBA from INSEAD and a Bachelor's and Master's in Computer Science from MIT.
