Relational Databases (RDBMS) have historically been the “one size fits all solution” for most data storage problems. But today, with data growing at an explosive rate, data processing systems have had to scale and Relational Databases have failed to handle the task at hand. As an alternative, the NoSQL movement has grown.

Srinath Perera
NoSQL solutions provide lesser guarantees than RDBMS, and architectures have to work around those limitations by using specific application characteristics and using a NoSQL solution that best fits the given problem. Therefore, there is no longer a single solution that solves all storage problems, rather there are several, and users have to choose the best based on the problem at hand.

Presented by:

Dr Srinath Perera currently he works as a senior software architect as WSO2 Inc. where he overlooks the overall WSO2 Platform architecture. Srinath also serves as a research scientists at Lanka Software Foundation. Furthermore, he teaches as a visiting faculty at Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Moratuwa. He received his Ph.D. and M.Sc. in Computer Sciences from Indiana University, Bloomington, USA and received his Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Engineering from University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka.

Topics covered:

  • WSO2’s vision of a modern storage solution.
  • How WSO2 Carbon, WSO2 Stratos and WSO2 StratosLive middleware platforms and PaaS offer developers easy access to their choice of flat files, RDBMS, and Cassandra NoSQL storages.
  • A glimpse into ongoing work adding support for HDFS and Map Reduce.


  • Application Developers
  • IT Managers and Enterprise Architects responsible for designing, developing and deploying very large scale storage solutions
