Scaling Databases For Global Serverless Applications
This workshop discusses the challenges Enterprises are facing when scaling the data tier to support multi-region deployments and serverless environments. Serverless edge functions and lightweight container orchestration enables applications and business logic to be easily deployed globally, often leaving the database as the latency and scaling bottleneck.
Join us to understand how solves these scaling challenges intelligently caching database data at the edge, without sacrificing transactionality or consistency. Get hands on with PolyScale for implementation, query observability and global latency testing with edge functions.
