Marvel Entertainment, Netflix, 10gen and Oracle lead the All-Star speaker faculty at this industry-leading database conference.

DATAVERSITY™ today announced this year’s keynote speakers for its 2013 NoSQL Now! Conference and Exhibition. This year’s line-up will include NoSQL heavy hitters including Adrian Cockcroft of Netflix, Max Schireson of 10gen, and Andy Mendelsohn of Oracle. The program will also include technology pioneers Nathan Marz, the creator of Storm, and Peter Olson, digital comic innovator at Marvel Entertainment. NoSQL Now! takes place August 20-22 at the San Jose Convention Center, in the heart of Silicon Valley.

“Keynote speakers should provide both thought leadership and industry guidance, and we have both in abundance at this year’s conference,” said Tony Shaw, CEO of DATAVERSITY and co-chair of NoSQL Now! “This year will be crucial to the evolution of the marketplace, as incumbent database giants like Oracle start to compete more aggressively with NoSQL market leaders like 10gen. It’s a clear indication that NoSQL databases are here to stay.”

Kicking off the keynote presentations on Wednesday, August 21st, Andy Mendelsohn of Oracle, will discuss Oracle NoSQL Database and what customers can expect to see from this software giant as the demand for huge, high-performance data continues to expand.

Then Nathan Marz, recently at Twitter and the creator of the real-time computation engine Storm, will talk about real-time computation. Marz was the lead engineer at BackType before being acquired by Twitter in 2011, where he started the streaming compute team which provides and develops shared infrastructure to support many critical realtime applications throughout the company.

Adrian Cockcroft, Director of Architecture for the Cloud Systems team at Netflix, will give his keynote presentation on Managing Scale and Complexity. Cockcroft leads the open source NetflixOSS program and the Netflix Cloud Prize (see http://netflix.github.com) and is also a well-known author of several books.

Peter Olson is a digital comic pioneer using NoSQL technology to solve real-world problems in the immense “fictional” universe at Marvel Entertainment, by modeling people, places and things using graph analysis.

And Max Schireson, the CEO of NoSQL market leader 10gen, will provide a perspective on the state of the database market, and in particular the role carved out by NoSQL products.

In addition, this year’s conference will host an impressive expo floor of the latest high-performance data solutions, and leading vendors will demonstrate dozens of innovations. This year’s sponsors include 10gen, GridGain, Objectivity, Oracle, FoundationDB, MapR Technologies, Cloudant, Couchbase, 28msec, Acunu, Aerospike. Neo Technology and YarcData.
