Managing Risk in Decentralized Networks with Time Series
Session date: Mar 24, 2020 09:00am (Pacific Time)
A distributed network is key to providing storage at lower costs than other cloud providers. By equipping customers with fast, secure and fully distributed storage, users no longer need to manage infrastructure. This platform enables applications to store and share end-to-end encrypted data across a distributed network. Discover how a time series database is a key component to their service.
In this latest Data Science Central webinar, John Gleeson and Ben Sirb will dive into:
- The definition of a cloud object storage network
- The advantages of using open source software in a modern tech stack
- How high-volume, real-time telemetry data is used to inform key business decisions
- A forecast predicting the impact of node churn on object health
