Moving to hybrid relational/JSON data models

  • Shane Johnson, Senior Director of Product Marketing at MariaDB
Session Abstract

While some data is best modeled as rows, other data is best modeled as JSON documents. JSON is the de facto standard for REST and microservices. MariaDB is the leading enterprise open source relational database, but it includes a comprehensive set of SQL functions for storing, indexing and querying JSON documents, too. In this session, you’ll learn how to extend relational data models with JSON documents to get the flexibility and agility you need when building modern applications.
