Powering the Internet of Moving Things with Aerospike

Geospatial data has become dynamic and rich in content. While high-performance NoSQL database Aerospike has shown the need for Speed at Scale for regular data, it’s needed for geospatial data too. Aerospike’s 3.7 release adds geospatial capabilities that enable developers to build high-throughput and low-latency applications around geospatial data. See how easy it is to build a Drone Delivery System – and other rich, complex applications that need Speed at Scale – using Aerospike’s geospatial capabilities and APIs, and watch the video here.

"From Development to Deployment" with Docker and Aerospike

Aerospike, the high-performance NoSQL database, is hosting a live webinar on January 28 at 1PM PST / 4 PM EST on the topic of "From Development to Deployment" with Docker and Aerospike.

In this one-hour talk, we'll review what Docker is and why it's important to Developers, Admins and DevOps when they are using Aerospike. 

This presentation includes an interactive demo showcasing the core Docker components (Machine, Engine, Swarm and Compose) and explaining how Aerospike makes developing & deploying multi-container applications simpler.

Feature Flag-Driven Development

It’s Friday late in the afternoon. Earlier in the day, you used LaunchDarkly to deploy a feature to 1% of your users, warmly wrapped in a feature flag. You wanted to test to see how it performed. If something bad happened, no problem. You knew you could just flip the switch and the feature would be rolled back with only 1% of your users experiencing a few seconds of inconvenience. This is just one of hundreds of use cases showcasing the power of feature flags.

Feature flags/toggles/controls harness the power of test-driven development (TDD). This is the process of releasing and iterating features quickly, testing those features, and making improvements. Think of it as Lean UX methodology. You release light features to receive market feedback. You iterate on that feedback, make improvements, and redeploy.

Think of feature flag-driven development as a way to receive iterative market feedback on your product in the real world, rather than solely depend on isolated customer feedback. LaunchDarkly lets you take control of features by implementing feature flags as a service. You can use LaunchDarkly’s intuitive dashboard to perform targeted and incremental software rollouts, all within an environment built to synchronize development teams. The platform has SDKs for all major languages including mobile, so teams can start using it immediately across their entire stack. Enterprise-grade performance and stability ensures that your users do not experience latency or downtime. Find out how it works here. By adopting a system for feature flagging, you’ll gain full control of your feature releases and with that the freedom to experiment and innovate faster.

See how it works.

VividCortex Gives You Database Superpowers 

Database monitoring is hard, but VividCortex makes it easy. Modern apps run complex queries at large scales across distributed, diverse types of databases (e.g. document, relational, key-value). The “data tier” that these become is tremendously difficult to observe and measure as a whole. The result? Nobody knows exactly what’s happening across all those servers.

VividCortex lets you handle this complexity like a superhero. With VividCortex, you're able to inspect all databases and their workloads together from a bird's eye view, spotting problems and zooming down to individual queries and 1-second-resolution metrics in just two mouse clicks. With VividCortex, you gain a superset of system-monitoring tools that use only global metrics (such as status counters), offering deep, multi-dimensional slice-and-dice visibility into queries, I/O, and CPU, plus other key measurements of your system's work. VividCortex is smart, opinionated, and understands databases deeply, too: it knows about queries, EXPLAIN plans, SQL bugs, typical query performance, and more. It empowers you to find and solve problems that you can't even see with other types of monitoring systems, because they don’t measure what matters to the database.

Best of all, VividCortex isn’t just a DBA tool. Unlike traditional monitoring tools, VividCortex eliminates the walls between development and production -- anybody can benefit from VividCortex and be a superhero. With powerful tools like time-over-time comparison, developers gain immediate production visibility into databases with no need for access to the production servers. Our customers vouch for it: Problems are solved faster and they're solved before they ever reach production. As a bonus, DBAs no longer become the bottleneck for things like code reviews and troubleshooting in the database. 

Make your entire team into database superheros: deploy VividCortex today. It only takes a moment, and you’re guaranteed to immediately learn something you didn’t already know about your databases and their workload.
