Besides being in the beautiful Riva Del Garda, the DSL had a great time at this year's VLDB. Faisal presented the lab's paper "Low-Latency Multi-Datacenter Databases using Replicated Commit." Aaron, Divy, Amr, and Carlo Curino of Microsoft presented a two part tutorial title "Towards Database Virtualization for Database as a Service." The tutorial covered basics of virtualization, advances in process and storage elasticity, and recent topics in building a Database as a Service. The slides can be found on Aaron' home page.
