Architecting Resilient Data

Our applications all fail at some point in time.  It is unavoidable. Over the past few decades we’ve employed techniques to limit the impact of these moments through often complex and costly active/passive backup strategies. There has to be a better way.

In this talk, Jim Walker from Cockroach Labs will walk through the concept of an active-active, always-on database that is rooted in the fundamental principles of distributed systems. We will cover topics such as:

  • The costly impacts of database downtime
  • RTO/RPO and what these key terms mean
  • Limitations of active/passive strategies
  • Distributed SQL and active-active data
