BEDFORD, Mass., April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- VoltDB today announced a new series of complimentary educational webcasts titled, "Stonebraker Says." MIT Professor Michael Stonebraker, a.k.a. the father of the modern relational database and VoltDB co-founder, will share insights and lessons learned from his 40-year career of industry innovation.
In the first event of the series, "Traditional RDBMS Wisdom is All Wrong," Stonebraker will challenge the conventional wisdom behind Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMSs), explaining why it's outdated and renders most major commercial DBMS offerings obsolete. He will make the case for modern in-memory architecture and why it's uniquely qualified to help organizations harness and make use of the tremendous onslaught of fast moving data generated by the Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications.
