Yes, Sql!

See below the slide deck from my session today at QCon SF titled "Yes, Sql!" (hopefully you liked it if you attended :) ). It focuses on how the classic querying models like plain SQL and JPA map to distributed data stores. It first reviews the current distributed data stores landscape, and its querying models (K/V, Column, Document), and discusses the wide range of APIs for data extraction from these data stores. It then discusses the main challenges of mapping various APIs to a distributed data model as we've done over the past few months in GigaSpaces, and the trade offs to be aware off.
