OpenStack Summit 2014 is a five-day conference for developers, users, and administrators of OpenStack Cloud Software — a topic near and dear to many Tokutek customers. This year’s event is being held in Atlanta, May 12-16, 2014.
Recently, I learned about an interesting Big Data DBMS survey being conducted during the lead up to the conference. I think it will shed light on some important emerging trends. The results of the survey will be presented at the show and be made available to anyone who participates after the show.
If you’re like me, learning what users are up to (or are thinking about doing) via these non obtrusive surveys is extremely useful because they help one see the big picture. Obviously, companies like Tokutek can use this data to inform their product planning efforts. But customers benefit too by learning what their peers are up to. A win-win for everyone involved.
Oh. And the sponsors are giving away a $100 AMEX gift card to one of every 100 respondents.
I encourage you to participate and share the survey URL with your colleagues. Visit http://svy.mk/1p7vNOA to take the survey now.
