Scalable transaction and polystore data management in LeanXcale

December 13, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Speaker: Ricardo Jimenez-Péris (LeanXcale, Spain), Patrick Valduriez (Inria, France)

Hybrid Transaction Analytical Processing (HTAP) is poised to revolutionize data management. By providing online analytics over operational data, HTAP systems open up new opportunities in many application domains where real-time decision is critical. Important use cases are proximity marketing, real-time pricing, risk monitoring, real-time fraud detection, etc. HTAP also simplifies data management, by removing the traditional separation between operational database and data warehouse/ data lake (no more ETLs!). However, a hard problem is scaling out transactions in mixed operational and analytical workloads over big data, possibly coming from different data stores (HDFS, SQL, NoSQL, …).Today, only a few NewSQL systems have solved this problem. In this talk, we introduce the solution for scalable transaction and polystore data management in LeanXcale, a new HTAP DBMS.

Dr. Ricardo Jimenez-Peris was a professor at TU Madrid (UPM) for over 25 years. Four years ago he abandoned his scientific career to incorporate LeanXcale and became an entrepreneur. As a researcher he co-authored over 100 scientific articles and papers. He is co-author of the book of “Replicated databases”. He is also co-inventor of two patents granted in US and Europe being exploited by LeanXcale. Already at the University he transferred technology to industry, an in memory database to Ericsson, a federated database to Teléfonica, a replication system for J2EE to Bull, and an orchestration engine for web services and its visual composer to Bull. He has been invited speaker at top tech companies to present LeanXcale technology such as Facebook, Twitter, Salesforce, Heroku, Cloudera, Hortonworks, Mapr, MongoDB, Greenplum, Microsoft, IBM, HP, etc.

Patrick Valduriez is a senior researcher at Inria, working on distributed data management. He has authored over 300 technical papers and several textbooks, among which one is “Principles of Distributed Database Systems”. He has been associate editor of major journals such as VLDBJ and DAPD and has served as PC chair or general chair of major conferences such as EDBT, SIGMOD and VLDB. He received the best paper award at VLDB 2000. He was the recipient of the 1993 IBM scientific prize in Computer Science in France and the 2014 Innovation Award from Inria – French Academy of Science. He is an ACM Fellow.
