About this event

** This will be an ONLINE event **

Hello everyone and welcome to the April '21 meetup of GDG Cloud Bangalore. Our speaker for the event is Thiago Tusca Nunes, Sr. Software Engineer at Google.

Cloud Spanner is Google’s rapidly-growing, planet-scale, highly scalable, multi-region, strongly consistent relational database (schemas, ACID transactions, SQL) that customers leverage to run their mission-critical workloads. As one of the world’s largest and most sophisticated distributed systems, Cloud Spanner is pushing the boundaries of what is possible in distributed computing. In this talk, we will describe Cloud Spanner’s features, discuss customer use cases, and provide an introduction to Spanner’s architecture, including transaction execution and the role of true time.
