C-LEVEL NETWORKING AGENDA

Join Chief Wine Officer and database management experts, Cockroach Labs, for a networking and knowledge-sharing experience. Right from your home, you’ll taste wine with an expert and enjoy deep business discussion with your peers. We’ll explore how brands like Lush, AllSaints and Shipt have built a fault-tolerant infrastructure, achieved low-latency availability, and scaled globally to reach new customers. RSVP now to receive our curated wines at your doorstep.

With ecommerce traffic back to pre-covid levels, retail brands are scaling horizontally to meet spike in demand. At this event, we’ll discover how they’ve managed this successfully, starting with the foundational layer: the database. Are you ready to share your stories and challenges, compare notes with your peers and expand your business network?

KEY DISCUSSION POINTS

  • How market leaders have simplified their retail infrastructure by 75%, consolidated their workload on a single database, and vastly improved fault-tolerance
  • The industry-tested strategy to ensure your data is always correct even during outages, and reduce Recovery Point Objective to 0
  • How to apply automation, scale horizontally, and overcome the need for manual sharding

But CWO brings to you more than an exchange of ideas among peers. Throughout the evening, you’ll taste a selection of premium wines, with each introduced by our Master of Wine. Once you’ve mastered their flavours, you’ll challenge your peers for the title of “Chief Wine Officer” – the best taster in the room. Register now to throw your hat in the ring.

Excellent…love the format. Two hours went so fast, and the discussion was excellent!

The event was well orchestrated, informational, and a great way to network with a group of peers and sponsors. Really fun setup and enjoyed the open dialogue.

It was probably one of the best virtual events I’ve had. Loved how business chatter was broken up by great wine tastings. Thank you all!
