Shanley Kane discusses Dynamo - consistent hashing, vector clocks, hinted handoff, gossip protocol - advances in each area, and how querying and application development has changed as a result of them.
Shanley Kane is Director of Product Management at Basho. Basho makes Riak, an open source, distributed database based on principles from Amazon's Dynamo paper. Previously, she worked at Apigee on the developer tools product team. She is a community organizer, advocate of women in technology, and an alum of Carnegie Mellon University.

Exalogic, on the other hand, was built to run middleware like Oracle Coherence (see coherence.oracle.com/ ), which is the HA elastic scale-out K/V & document NoSQL data store that predates Dynamo by several years, dynamically scales to many terabytes of in-memory data, and (speaking of latency) is around 3 orders of magnitude faster than the numbers that were published about Dynamo.
