Presentation: Deliver edge and IoT apps that work anywhere all the time, even without internet!

Apps that run at the edge must be fast and reliable at all times, especially those operating in remote locations such as deep wilderness, underground, at sea, or in the air. A fundamental challenge in meeting these requirements remains the network; no matter the coverage, reliability or speed it provides, it will inevitably suffer latency and outages that bring down the applications that rely on it. The only way to guarantee uptime and low-latency is to bring data storage and processing to the edge, eliminating dependencies on distant cloud data centers and the internet. In this session you will learn about the importance of having a cloud-native, edge-ready database for powering always fast, always on edge and IoT apps.
