In the past, scalability with relational databases was achieved via complex and incomplete workarounds, such as sharding or costly hardware — and non-relational approaches sacrificed data consistency to achieve scalability. Now, there’s distributed SQL, a new database category that offers extreme scalability.

Join this session to learn about MariaDB Xpand, a distributed SQL database for use cases requiring scalable transaction processing and operational analytics without sacrificing the relational data model and ACID transactions.
  • An overview of distributed SQL
  • How distributed SQL recovers from unexpected node failures
  • The architecture that makes this possible
