Rapid Adoption of Cloud Data Warehouse Technology Using Datometry Hyper-Q


The database industry is about to undergo a fundamental transformation
of unprecedented magnitude as enterprises start trading their well-established database stacks on premises for cloud database technology. Enterprises eager to move to the cloud face a significant dilemma: making existing applications work with new database platforms is an enormously costly undertaking that calls for rewriting and adjusting of 100’s if not 1,000’s of applications. In this talk, we present a next-generation virtualization technology that lets existing applications run natively on cloud-based database systems. Using this platform, enterprises can move rapidly to the cloud and innovate and create competitive advantage as a matter of months instead of years. We describe technology and application scenarios and demonstrate effectiveness and performance of the approach through actual customer use cases.
