Kathy Gates et al. (University of Mississippi): In-Memory Databases and Big Data

We live in a world saturated with mobile devices, environmental sensors, social media channels, and more—all of which constantly generate vast amounts of data. Deriving meaningful insights and actionable information from these data sources presents challenges for computer scientists. Find out how in-memory databases such as HANA are helping to address the challenges of big data. This Science Café presentation will focus on the hardware and software features of in-memory databases and will include live demonstrations by Ole Miss Information Technology (IT) staff members and their children.
