Edge Performance with In-memory NoSQL

First we started with memcache, the veteran of in-memory NoSQL. Our goal was always auto scaling on AWS and that's when we started using Redis, around 2 years ago, and it has our session, cached items and static data. But then we had bigger needs and for those we recently discovered Aerospike.

Full abstract

We are going to talk about in-memory NoSQL databases and how they can integrate in your current architecture in order to deliver high performance applications to your users. These can be used as session storage, a cache or a real database. We will talk at least about Memcache (the veteran), Redis (the mature) and Aerospike (the new guy), see where they excel and how you can add them to your existing stack.
