New presentations added to the conference line up include:

Dropping ACID: Architecting with Eventual Consistency in the Cloud by Jason Bloomberg of ZapThink.
Moving Beyond the No/New/SQL Debate: Introducing the Application Data Layer, by Mike Miller of Cloudant
Keeping up with Streaming/Sensor Data by Dave Brown of EMC
Market sensing Using a Graph Database by Montiago LaBute of YarcData

To see the full program go to:

Many new sponsors and exhibitors have also joined the exhibit floor in recent weeks, including VoltDB, Versant, Oracle, OpenShift (by Red Hat), StarCounter, Phasic Systems, Yarc Data, Analytica, Gigaspaces, Clustrix, Cloudant, Metric Insights and Manning Publications.

Some highlights from these exhibiting organizations include:

VoltDB is a NewSQL database that is focused on high velocity, 100% accuracy with real-time analytics. VoltDB will conduct a Lunch n Learn workshop so that conference attendees can start to gain experience with VoltDBs newest generation database for micro-transactions, low-latency, real-time feeds, sensor-driven data, and throughput of millions of operations per second.

Metric Insights will show a detailed Big Data case study of how Barnes & Noble Inc. uses Metric Insights to create insights from a 100 Terabyte Aster data store. The system is used by hundreds of users daily, both internal and at external partners sites.

Starcounter will discuss the companys patent-pending VMDBMS technology, which is more than 100 times faster than traditional databases and 10 times faster than high performance databases. Its in-memory database is ideal for highly transactional large-scale and real-time applications, while guaranteeing ACID-compliant transactions.

YarcData’s uRiKA system is a Big Data appliance for graph analytics. uRiKA helps enterprises reveal unknown, unexpected or hidden relationships in Big Data by creating a highly-scalable, real-time graph analytics warehouse that supports ad hoc queries, pattern-based searches, inferencing and deduction. Yarc Data is a Cray company.

Versants Robert Greene, will examine NoSQLs adoption problems that stem from a lack of standards-based programming techniques, and will describe how to use JPA to get around them. The presentation will feature Big Data deployment examples from the utilities and energy management sectors showing how consumer energy demand response and AMI harvesting can be performed at high speed and scale using Hadoop and Java.

NoSQL Now! is the preferred industry platform for developers to announce product launches and breaking news. Leading vendors will demonstrate dozens of innovations. This years Platinum level sponsors include leading graph vendors like Neo Technology (creators of Neo4j) and Objectivity, the company behind InfiniteGraph. Additional NoSQL and high-performance database companies who will be exhibiting include 10gen, Couchbase, DataStax, Amazon Web Services, Clustrix, Franz and Cloudant.
