Here’s what we’ll discuss:

Combining the flexibility of open-source databases with the agility of a cloud service sounds great, but what does it look like in practice? What are the pitfalls to avoid and the benefits you can expect by adopting and managing open-source databases for your products and business operations?

This roundtable discussion is designed for IT leaders at digital native companies who are considering Open Source Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) as a core part of their application strategy. We’re going to explore questions like these:

  • What is attractive about open source in this cloud-native era?
  • Is it easy to adopt open source to manage your application’s data layer?
  • Have you considered a 100% open-source data layer for any complex data/event-driven applications?
  • What do we think is on the horizon for open-source data platforms?

Join us for a lively conversation with peers and DBaaS experts. Conversations are wide-ranging and lead to many insights into how Aiven can help your business succeed.
