How to Gain an Order of Magnitude in Software Productivity

Tuesday June 18 | 2PM Eastern | 11AM Pacific

With trends like serverless computing and distributed microservices architectures taking hold, it's increasingly challenging to build and secure cloud applications. For the last several years, Postgres creator and DBOS co-founder, Dr. Mike Stonebraker and a group of MIT and Stanford researchers have been re-thinking the cloud-native application stack. Please join us on June 18 to hear Mike explain a new and easier way to architect resilient cloud applications that scale.

Mike will cover:

  • Cloud architecture do's and don'ts
  • How to build resilient, distributed microservices applications with 10x less code
  • Achieving transactional correctness in a distributed microservices architecture
  • An open source framework, DBOS Transact, that uses Postgres as a state machine to automate resilience, time travel debugging, and observability
  • Benchmarks comparing the efficiency of the DBOS Cloud stateful serverless computing platform versus AWS Lambda and AWS Step Functions
  • Q&A with Mike

About Mike Stonebraker

Dr. Stonebraker has been a pioneer of data base research and technology for more than forty years. He was the main architect of the INGRES relational DBMS, and the object-relational DBMS, POSTGRES. These prototypes were developed at the University of California at Berkeley where Stonebraker was a Professor of Computer Science for twenty-five years. More recently at M.I.T. he was the co-architect of the C-Store column- oriented DBMS, the H-Store transaction processing engine, the Data Tamer data integration system, the SciDB array processing engine, the Kyrix visualization system and the operating system DBOS. He is the founder of ten venture-capital backed startups which have commercialized his prototypes.

Professor Stonebraker is the author of scores of research papers on data base technology, operating systems and the architecture of system software services. He was awarded the ACM System Software Award in 1992, for his work on INGRES. Additionally, he was awarded the first annual Innovation award by the ACM SIGMOD special interest group in 1994 and was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 1997. He was awarded the IEEE John Von Neumann award in 2005, and the ACM Turing Award in 2014. Presently he is an Adjunct Professor of Computer Science at M.I.T., where he is working on a variety of future-generation data-oriented projects.
