"We are honored and pleased to have support and expert guidance from some of the smartest and most experienced individuals in the database space," said Monte Zweben, co-founder and CEO, Splice Machine. "We are confident that the deep knowledge and unique backgrounds of our advisors, in combination with the skill sets of the Splice Machine team, gives us the foundation to accelerate our footprint in the market."

Franklin, a widely published academic leader with an extensive knowledge of databases, along with Bamford, Neimat and Rudin, three industry leaders, will advise Splice Machine on its product roadmap and go-to-market strategy.

Roger Bamford is a database luminary and until recently, the Principal Architect of Server Technologies at Oracle. Mr. Bamford, known as the father of Oracle RAC, was an original member of Oracle's database team. Holder of dozens of patents relating to database and clustering technology, he was responsible for many software innovations relating to the architecture and performance of relational databases at Oracle.

Michael Franklin is the Siebel Professor of Computer Science and Chair of the Computer Science Division at UC Berkeley. He is also Director of the UC Berkeley AMPLab, where the open-source data analytics cluster computing framework, Apache Spark, was created. Dr. Franklin has more than 30 years in the database and distributed systems fields as a faculty member, entrepreneur, architect, researcher, consultant, and software developer.

"Over the past 30 years or so, it's been fascinating to see all of the new disruptive innovations in the database industry, but what Splice Machine is doing is truly unique," said Franklin. "As they gain traction in the marketplace, customers of legacy transactional database systems will have a very viable alternative to their costly, scale-up databases." 

In-memory database pioneer Marie-Anne Neimat co-founded TimesTen, Inc., the first company to develop and commercialize an in-memory relational database. Neimat brings a track record of database innovation, serving as Vice President of Engineering for three of Oracle's databases, namely Oracle TimesTen In-Memory Database, which Oracle acquired, Oracle Berkeley Database, also acquired by Oracle, and Oracle NoSQL Database. Neimat is the holder of several patents, and the author of many publications in refereed conferences and journals."

Ken Rudin, head of analytics for Facebook, is an entrepreneur with a unique combination of leadership skills, analytical strength, technology and marketing expertise. Ken honed his database knowledge at Oracle, where he served as General Manager, Data Warehousing and Parallel Systems. He also served as VP and General Manager of Siebel CRM OnDemand Division & VP of Marketing, Siebel Analytics. He further enhanced his skills at Zynga, where he served as VP of Analytics and Platform Technologies. His passion for evangelizing new ideas will help Splice Machine increase its share of voice as a leader in the space.

"The database market is undergoing fundamental shifts in customer needs," said Rudin. "Increasingly, applications and analytics require real-time data and transactions to truly provide deeper insights and respond in real-time. The Splice Machine team stands out to me as having the right combination of vision, product knowledge and expertise to unlock those insights and emerge as a disruptive force in databases by powering a whole new generation of data-driven applications for the enterprise."

The Splice Machine database enables companies to replace traditional RDBMS that are too costly or difficult to scale. A full-featured, transactional Hadoop RDBMS with ANSI SQL compatibility, Splice Machine moves Hadoop beyond its batch analytics heritage to power operational applications and real-time analytics.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
