Why start a new database company? What is RethinkDB all about? What will database technology look like twenty years from now? In this talk we will explore these questions, present some of the exciting technology we’ve been developing at RethinkDB, and show how it fits into our larger vision of what database systems may look like in the future. If you’ve been wondering where database technology is headed, join us for this keynote! We’ll explore whether traditional database systems can stand the test of time, and talk about why we think solid-state drives are a catalyst for a new golden age of database technology.
