Elements of Scale



Ben Stopford examines tools, mechanisms and tradeoffs that allow a data architecture to scale, from disk formats to fully blown architectures for real-time storage, streaming and batch processing.


Ben Stopford is an architect/engineer at RBS with a focus on different types of data stores, particularly NoSQL. He’s been recently working on a large data store that combines a number of concepts from the NoSQL, Relational and Big Data worlds. The project won a Banking Technology Award and led to a few talks and papers about certain aspects of its architecture.
