Sell Globally, Manage Locally with Distributed SQL

Retailers often function in distributed application environments, with data squirreled away in databases around the country, or even the globe. It’s totally common to use different solutions for different workloads — for example, Cassandra for fast data reads with Oracle as the primary system of record.

Retailers often function in distributed application environments, with data squirreled away in databases around the country, or even the globe. It’s totally common to use different solutions for different workloads — for example, Cassandra for fast data reads with Oracle as the primary system of record.

This means developer teams typically have to implement workarounds (such as asynchronous replication and streaming) to get these systems in sync.
