Session 1 (90 minutes) Discover a fundamental shift in database technology


Cary Bourgeois, Sales Engineer for FaunaDB (

Session Abstract

With an introduction to FaunaDB, you will hear the benefits of a distributed transactional database without the application complexities. FaunaDB is a new category of database that brings back the Enterprise capabilities that NoSQL had to drop in order to scale. Previously you had to decide between data consistency OR high availability & scalability. FaunaDB gives you the best of both worlds - the strong data/transactional consistency and security of RDBMS with the horizontal scaling, high resiliency, and performance qualities of NoSQL. This means ACID transactions across all your globally distributed data-centers along with scalability and high availability.
