Earlier this year, we held the second annual Distributed SQL Summit, a free online conference to push the boundaries of cloud native RDBMS forward. (You can view all the talks on our Vimeo channel) Attendee feedback was very positive, the engagement level was high, and the talks were amazing! We heard the request from several community members to take the show on the (virtual) road to other timezones to make it easier to join live.

What is the Distributed SQL Summit Asia?

The Distributed SQL Summit Asia is a free online conference to push the boundaries of cloud native RDBMS forward. The event brings together thought leaders, database builders, and application developers to discuss how to leverage distributed SQL systems to build applications and services in the cloud.

Topics include:

  • How to modernize legacy applications when moving to the cloud
  • How to design applications to leverage the distinctive features of distributed SQL databases
  • How to migrate from a traditional RDBMS to a distributed database
  • Best practices for running distributed SQL databases in production environments, including how to achieve high availability, high performance, and operational ease

With Distributed SQL Summit Asia, we aim to accomplish these goals:

  • A place to learn: The Summit provides an educational forum to foster learning related to distributed databases across various topics such as the driving forces behind the evolution of these databases, the practical problems that are being solved, and real-world migration journeys to these architectures.
  • A place to exchange ideas: You can hear insights from developers, users, platform architects, and database enthusiasts. There’s a live chat during each session — ask questions, share your experiences, and take part in the conversation.

Who Should Attend Distributed SQL Summit Asia?

The Summit is for anyone interested in distributed databases, including application developers, data engineers, database builders, DBAs, architects, DevOps, and IT decision makers (VP of Infrastructure, VP of Engineering, etc.). If you are curious about how and why distributed databases are rising in popularity, and the benefits they provide, then this conference is for you!
