If we abandoned our earthly constraints, how could we improve consensus algorithms? Specifically, what would it take to make them faster?
Tobias Schottdorf presented The Design & Architecture of CockroachDB as part of MediaMath’s internal education series. [note: Video is missing first 30 seconds]
Tobias gave a Cockroach tech talk at Clarifai a few days ago, providing an overview of the various components of the system and, at least I hope, filling in enough detail to get a good intuitive understanding of how everything fits together.
Cgo is an important part of Go: It's your window to calling anything that anything that has C bindings. But while cgo works for us, it hasn’t come for free.
A brief introduction of Cockroach DB, a distributed, scalable and disaster-resistent database followed by the first demo of its SQL layer.
CockroachDB is a distributed, horizontally scalable database with transactional semantics, thus combining the best features of relational and NoSQL databases.
CockroachDB is an open source scalable database that is easy to deploy and, despite the name, quite attractive to have around. In the talk, we’ll introduce you to the team behind CockroachDB and talk about what’s under the hood among other topics.
