Where Do I Put This Data? - Ezra Zygmuntowicz

In this talk we will explore the explosion of key value and other
alternative storage engines for storing data without using a relational
database. There are so many options these days for storing your data, how
do you choose what will work for you? When do you really need to get out of
the relational model and into a DHT or bigtable style data store. We will
explore various options like redis, toyko, couchdb, flare, dynomite and
when and why you would choose one of these data stores.


Ezra Zygmuntowicz is a founder and developer at Engine Yard. He has been
active in the Ruby community for over five years, and has contributed to
many open source projects, including Rails, Merb, Rack and Rubinius. He is
co-author of Deploying Rails Applications, published by The Pragmatic
Programmers, and speaks at Ruby, Rails and Cloud Computing related events
throughout the country.
