Data Gravity, Data Friction and the Autonomous Database

Why data gravity is taking over as the new norm for business, and why the friction it causes is the top challenge facing so many today.

Tune into an open discussion between Dominic Delmolino and Kellyn Pot’Vin-Gorman on why data gravity is taking over as the new norm for business, and why the friction it causes is the top challenge facing so many today. They dive in to discuss several key topics behind data gravity, including:

  • The increasing size of data exerting a gravitational pull within the technology system
  • How applications and services become attracted to large data sources, increasing traffic density and accelerating gravitational pull

Discuss some of the theories around data gravity, including:

  • Network latency and Shannon’s law
  • Limitations on computational power due to Von Neumann bottlenecks
  • The economics of data and data placement

We’ll round up the discussion on how we can overcome these challenges with DataDevOps practices, using DevOps techniques applied to data virtualization and automation.
