The need to simplify data architectures, while being able to provide zero-latency analytics, be exponentially scalable, and exploit cloud platforms has grown. For many years, special-purpose databases have served organizations very well. But for today’s data-intensive applications, just good is no longer good enough. The database-per-workload approach has caused data infrastructure sprawl, which is complex and costly. As the data intensity of modern workloads has grown, so has the problem and now demands a new approach.

A Unified database is emerging as a key solution by bringing together multiple workloads and data types within one unified platform to deliver the speed, scale, and agility that organizations need. 

Join us for an interactive webinar to learn more about:

  • How organizations should be thinking about database sprawl and simplifying their data architectures 
  • Introduction and  basics of a Unified database
