Getting your hands dirty with Aerospike

Submitted Jul 1, 2014

Aerospike is the new open-source NoSQL database. It is easily the fastest clustered NoSQL database solution. It is also well known for its operational easy-of-use. The objective of the workshop is to get your hands dirty with it.


We will go over the following in the workshop

  1. Talk about the architecture of Aerospike
  2. Install, setup, configure
  3. Use tools built around aerospike
  4. Coding using its API (java/node.js)
  5. Using Aerospike in existing app frameworks (TBD)
  6. Using Aerospike on Amazon cloud.
  7. Unleash the high performance of Aerospike

We will organize the people into teams to encourage discussion and mutual help. Also, in the later part of the workshop, the team will use their individual EC2 machines to form a cluster and learn how to deal with cluster.


  • General idea about databases
  • General coding experience

Hardware Requirements:
We will try to provide EC2 machine for everyone to try out. But in the worst case of network failure, its better to have the following as a backup solution.

  • A 64-bit machine. (virtual machine is fine)
  • Atleast 2G RAM
  • Centos 6/RHEL 6/Ubuntu 12.04/Debian 6/Debian 7 OS
