As organizations move to the Cloud, they must deal with the challenges of eventual consistency and the horizontal scalability required for true Cloud elasticity. Enter BASE transactionality -- Basic Availability, Soft State, and Eventual Consistency. This BASE context throws a wrench into traditional enterprise data management. How do we manage data in an inherently distributed, increasingly diverse business environment?
Multiversion Concurrency Control (MVCC) is part of the answer. MVCC avoids database locks in even the most distributed, elastic environments by maintaining an immutable data store. Data are never changed in the database -- instead, new versions are written and old versions are marked as obsolete. Each user sees a snapshot of the database valid at the time of each read. Each write can be an ACID transaction while the entire database supports BASE.
The rest of the answer consists of late-bound schemas. Store schemaless data for maximum flexibility. Resolve data structure issues dynamically at runtime. Late bound schemas support real-time personalization and change management, while MVCC provides data immutability for trace and audit control. These are the secrets to how EnterpriseWeb revolutionizes data management for the enterprise.
Attendees of this Lunch-and-Learn will learn:
- How Multiversion Concurrency Control (MVCC) and data immutability address scalability issues in Cloud and other distributed environments
- Why schemaless data stores and late-bound schemas solve complex data consistency challenges
- How EnterpriseWeb combines MVCC and late-bound schemas to provide a paradigm-shifting approach to managing diverse, dynamic data in the enterprise
