Cockroach Labs (NYC) will be visiting Columbia for an info session on Consistency in CockroachDB. Come hear a member of our team speak about CockroachDB and our mission to Make Data Easy. In this talk, we will give you insight into how data consistency occurs across the system, regardless of how many locations the database has been propagated to.
Company Overview: Cockroach Labs is the company behind CockroachDB, an open source database headquartered in New York City. CockroachDB is a distributed relational database that is scalable, survivable, and strongly consistent - hence the name. It combines the rich functionality of SQL with the horizontal scalability common to NoSQL offerings, and provides enterprise-grade disaster recovery. The company was founded in 2015 with a mission to Make Data Easy. CockroachDB enables developers to build scalable applications that can survive data center outages without breaking a sweat. With strong consistency, distributed SQL, and transactions, CockroachDB frees developers to focus on what matters – building great applications.
