The Big Show: Visit Actian at AWS re:Invent 2017 in Las Vegas By Alan Dunkin November 27, 2017 The largest cloud computing conference of 2017 is now here in AWS re:Invent and it’s taking over Las Vegas in a big way. An estimated 40,000 engineers, product leads, marketers, technical architects, and expert users from around the world will be descending on The Strip, attending keynotes, bootcamps, demos, hackathons, and in-depth hands-on training sessions at the Aria, Venetian, Mirage, MGM Grand and other venues from November 27 to December 1. Actian is a partner of AWS re:Invent 2017 and everyone is invited to visit us in the Expo Hall of The Venetian at Booth #1538 (as you enter the Hall from the front, we are in a center column of booths near the AWS Village at the far end). We’ll be at the booth (and the Welcome Reception) on these dates and times: Tuesday, November 28: 10:30am – 3:00pm and 5:00pm – 7:00pm (Welcome Reception) Wednesday, November 29: 10:30am – 6:00pm Thursday, November 30: 10:30am – 6:00pm If you’re new to Actian products, here are some of the products in our portfolio we’ll be happy to talk to you about: Actian Vector in-memory analytics database is a consistent performance leader on the TPC-H Decision Support Benchmark over the last 5 years.
