Cloud computing and big data are two of the hottest topics in the industry today, which makes cloud databases a particularly hot prospect for 2012. What is a cloud database, however? Matt Aslett, senior analyst enterprise software, 451 Research, examines the difference between databases running in the public cloud, and databases that will be used to power private and hybrid clouds and provides an overview of the functional requirements that separate database running in the cloud from true cloud databases. Following Matt's talk, Karen Tegan Padir, Vice President of Products and Marketing, EnterpriseDB, will give an overview and demonstration of their newest product, Postgres Plus ® Cloud Server.

In this webcast, you'll get an overview of the current state of cloud database computing, and more specifically differences between cloud databases and databases in the cloud. We'll also cover:

  • Current cloud database offerings - products and services
  • Cloud database requirements - public versus private/hybrid

This overview will be followed by an overview and demonstration of Postgres Plus Cloud Server, which provides DBaaS for PostgreSQL databases which are full-features enterprise class databases. Cloud Server gives data center users a tool that is simple to setup and manage, that dramatically reduces the time and complexity to scale out critical databases.
