The Hows & Whys of a Distributed SQL Database [StrangeLoop 2017]

Alex Robinson, engineer at Cockroach Labs, presented this talk at StrangeLoop 2017. He walks through the key design choices behind CockroachDB and compares it to past SQL and NoSQL designs. He looks specifically at how to achieve the easy deployment and management of a scalable, self-healing, strongly-consistent database with techniques such as dynamic sharding and rebalancing, consensus protocols, lock-free transactions, and more.
