Founders' Series: Architecture of a Distributed Database with Peter Mattis, CTO

Recorded on Wednesday, Jul 13, 2022

60 minutes

The codebase of CockroachDB reads a bit like a PhD in distributed systems, and our founders have played a large role in the build and architecture of this next-gen cloud database. Diving into the architecture of CockroachDB might help you understand some of the major concerns and challenges of distributed systems.

In this session, CTO and co-founder Peter Mattis of Cockroach Labs takes a technical deep dive into the architecture of our distributed database and decisions that had to be made in order to solve some previously unsolved problems, such as:

  • How to think about storage in a distributed system
  • Managing transactions across broadly disperse systems
  • RAFT, MVCC, and some core distributed algorithms
