Distributed SQL databases are the new industry buzz, and for good reason. As systems of record and SQL workloads move from the back office to the cloud, a more scalable relational database is essential. However, not all distributed SQL databases are equal. Vendor claims often do not match the production experience. How do you evaluate whether a distributed SQL database is the right solution and sort out which one suits your needs?

In this presentation, you will learn:

• What differentiates distributed SQL databases from other database types
• The application types and use cases that are appropriate for distributed SQL
• Features and characteristics to consider in evaluating a distributed SQL database
• How to design a solution evaluation and proof of concept (POC)
