Free Your Btrieve Data
Do you feel like your Btrieve data is inaccessible using modern tools? Is your data stuck behind the Btrieve curtain? We will discuss methods for taking your native Btrieve data files and making the data accessible to anyone (or anything) with a web browser.

Virtualizing PSQL
PSQL test activities have been more than 90% automated since 2005. Early in 2015, we began virtualizing all PSQL test machines, including every flavor of Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. First, we'll discuss the automation framework and how it enables wholesale virtualization. Then we'll discuss the effort to virtualize all 200+ machines in the Actian PSQL test environment. This session will also cover optimization and troubleshooting lessons learned while virtualizing these boxes and our experiences experimenting with Amazon Web Services and VMware vCloud Air to host test activities. Finally, we'll wrap up with a forward-looking discussion about how virtualization is evolving and how PSQL will play an important role in these new application architectures.
Jeff Chapman, Architect, Actian
