“I am delighted to be returning to one of my favorite events, the NoSQL Now! Conference, to share some of my insights on what is happening with in-memory computing for data storage. Memory is becoming the new disk. For cost of business (cost per megabyte retrieved per time measure), there is no comparison to other forms of data storage. The ability to achieve orders of magnitude improvement in transactional speed or value-added quality is a requirement for systems scaling to the future.” said William McKnight.
