50 minutes conference

ActorDB is a distributed SQL database that speaks the MySQL client/server protocol. It has a buzzword rich set of features like: - Strong consistency (not eventual consistency) - No single point of failure - ACID - Replicated using Raft distributed consensus - Uses SQLite on top of LMDB as a storage engine - Scalable to a large number of nodes What's the catch? Hint is in the name and storage engine. This talk will cover: - What ActorDB is and what trade-offs it employs to make it scale horizontally. - How we integrated SQLite, Raft distributed consensus and the LMDB storage engine. - How ActorDB sharding works and how you can go from 1 to 100 nodes. - What ActorDB KV store is and why it's awesome.
