Is Memory-Based IT the Future?
JOIN US: This is a chat-based conversation about the way we may all be doing our computing in the near future. We've moved from hard drives to flash disks to hybrids, and now we're looking at in-memory everything.

#eweekchatNo- and Low-Code DevelopmentLet's chat about citizen development as creating software and special features gets into the hands of those using it on the front lines.

Have a great week, everybody! Until next Second Wednesday, CP out!

I see on the control board that we had a good number of "lurkers" today who didn't participate. Perhaps it was the topic ... my bad, I guess. Perhaps we'll get a great participation with edge computing next month. Join us then! This is a good and smart community!

Here are the topics for the next three months:
Feb. 13: Edge Computing: IT's Newest Greenfield
March 13: How Enterprises Can Get Truth into All Their Data
April 10: Where Are We Going to Store All This Data

Well, today apparently wasn't a good day for this eWEEKchat! I know when I'm licked ;-) Let's call it a day and return again next month.

Q3: Will cloud be the most optimal way to access in-memory computing?
Chris Preimesberger
Q2: Is it just for the big players, or will any business be able to use it?

However, my approach is that half the duty of any worker is first simply showing up. We said we'd do these rain or shine, and that also means CES or no CES, so we'll stay with this for a half-hour or so and see who's available.

Side note: I am very cognizant of the fact that today is the second day of the Consumer Electronics Show 2019 in Las Vegas, and that many of our community are either a) there on site, or b) monitoring news from the event, which is expected to attract 175,000 people!

Q1: In-memory at the moment is more expensive than standard disk drives and flash drives, which work fine for the most part. But scale and speed will be needed for new, heavier-weight workloads. How viable do you think in-memory computing will be for most enterprises?

Let's get to it, then. First question:
