One of our portfolio companies, Leanxcale, is preparing a series of technical talks aimed at engaging with data experts EU wide. The first talk will be at DOCOMO Digital facilities in Madrid on the 7th of March from 9 to 13 PM (more information here) This is a guest post provided by Leanxcale.

Leanxcale is the 2017 Innovation Radar winning company that recently announced a round of investment by Bullnet Capital of 2 million euros.

Leanxcale developed a solution for solving the biggest obstacle for the last 30 years in database management systems, the lack of horizontal scalability. This fact has conditioned the full market since the databases cannot scale out to more than a few nodes.

Mainframes are still the way that big corporations are captive by a small number of manufactures. Enterprise companies seem to say: “If we are not able to scale, Let’s buy the largest server.”

Twenty years ago, mainframe looked like an old-fashioned technology about to disappear. But it is still the jewel in the crown for big players as IBM, BMC or CA, recently acquired by more than 18 billion by Broadcom, a hardware company.

On the other hand, NoSQL vendors have appeared under the wrong belief that the CAP theorem restricts the scalability of transactional management. Some NoSQL solutions offer scalability by trading off database consistency and ease of querying a standard SQL database offers. Around of them, a full portfolio of new architectures has been designed, making the system more difficult to maintain and develop.

Dr. Ricardo Jimenez Peris is a former professor and researcher at UPM (Technical University of Madrid) that has spent the last twenty years investigating this field. Eight years ago, he decided to start from scratch, ignoring all his previous research, trying to sort out this enormous challenge: How to make a database to scale out linearly ad infinitum.

He managed to resolve it thanks to a smart distributed algorithm that provides an elegant solution that runs on a commodity cluster, either on-premise or in the cloud.

He will share his experience and the details of this algorithm in an open and free presentation next March 7th in Madrid (more information here).

Ricardo will explain us the details of the CAP theorem and this smart algorithm called Iguazú has solved database scalability. There will be a discussion slot where he will be answering and discussing any questions or comments about the topic raised by the audience.

The event is supported by IRSUS programme and will hopefully be the first one of many. Stay tuned!
