In this talk, we will review the strengths and qualities of each database type from their particular use-case perspectives. Although having everything in one database seems like the straightforward path, it is not always the most cost or time effective path. Many Databases have become more specialized for the types of data they handle. Learn how to make the right choice for your workloads with this walkthrough of a set of distinct database types (graph, in-memory, search, columnar, document, relational, key-value, and time series databases). Learn about current trends in the database ecosystem and then learn about a number of different specialized databases and their strengths and weaknesses. This presentation will go over some of the fastest growing segments in the database space.
