Exciting meeting coming up this month! We have two really interesting and useful cloud technologies to talk about: database-as-a-service, and monitoring-as-a-service.

Orchestrate: Matt Heitzenroder is the co-founder and COO of Orchestrate (http://orchestrate.io), which is a new startup here in Portland. Orchestrate is a Database-as-a-Service, which unifies multiple types of databases behind a single REST API that is optimized for queries like full-text search, graph, time-series, geospatial, and key/value. Matt will talk about his experience with databases in the cloud and what led him and his co-founders to create Orchestrate. Matt will share the vision of Orchestrate for cloud and databases and top off the evening with a demo and Q&A session.

Stackdriver: Josh Vaughn-Uding, Senior DevOps Engineer at CrowdCompass will present on how his team monitors their AWS environment using Stackdriver. Stackdriver (http://www.stackdriver.com/) provides powerfully simple monitoring-as-a-service that helps DevOps spend more time on dev and less on ops. Created by a team of DevOps and SaaS experts and backed by Bain Capital Ventures and Flybridge Capital Partners, Stackdriver focuses on helping cloud-powered companies address performance bottlenecks before they impact customers while reducing the burden associated with patchwork monitoring solutions.

DATE/TIME: Wednesday, May 14th. Doors open at 6:30PM, presentations start at 7.

LOCATION: Elemental Technologies, 225 SW Broadway, 6th Floor.

PROVISIONS: Pizza, beer, non-alcoholic refreshments.
