Making HTAP Real with TiFlash -- A TiDB Native Columnar Extension

Wednesday 4:15 PM - 5:05 PM

@ Big Bend AB

TiDBOpen Source Databases

50 minutes conference



From the very beginning, TiDB was designed with the combination of Hybrid Transactional and Analytical Processing (HTAP) workloads in mind. However, since TiKV stores data in a row-oriented fashion, you may have been left wondering how well suited that is for analytics?

In this talk, I will introduce TiFlash which is a native extension of TiDB that offers column-oriented storage to speed up heavy-duty OLAP queries. I will then go over the architecture and some of the design decisions, and how you will be able to use it for your next generation data processing needs.
