Episode 189: Eric Lubow on Polyglot Persistence

Filed in Episodes by on November 16, 2012 3 Comments

Recording Venue: Skype

Guest: Eric Lubow

Eric LubowEric Lubow and Robert discuss polyglot persistence, a term used to describe systems that incorporate multiple specialized persistent stores rather than a single general-purpose database.  Eric provides insights into the forces driving this trend:  including diverse data usage patterns, low latency, and increasing volumes of data.  The emergence of many free storage servers that perform well much better than most general-purpose databases for specific usage patterns has made polyglot persistence cost-effective.   Eric shares some of his experiences deploying storage solutions, programming languages, and the driver libraries.  Eric and Robert wrap up with a discussion of the impact of polyglottism on architecture and testing.  Along the way, they explore the cultural shifts that need to take place as organizations move from the one-size-fits-all model.

    I would love to listen to this on my phone. Download link is not working. I get an error on my phone (Android 2.x, opera mini). And on PC (windows 7 64 bit, chrome) it brings up a player window.

    Both when using the download link.

      Could you retry it please? It might have been a temporary glitch, since it works for me now.

        FDT5 Same thing on PC. It is a chrome thing as far as I can tell, since I discovered it happening on other sight. Click download, goes to full screen player, right click on back ground, “Save As” and it will download.

        Took me a bit to find the hidden box for Captcha entry.
