LSM - Log Structured Merge tree databases - is getting well known to database communities. Compared to traditional databases like InnoDB, LSM is optimized for writes, and has penalties for reads. The most popular LSM database in the world is probably HBase. LSM is not unrelated to MySQL. MySQL has pluggable storage engine architecture, and there are already a couple of storage engines supporting LSM. At Facebook, we use InnoDB for majority of applications, but also use LSM databases for some services, especially for write intensive ones. The speaker will cover the following topics. - What is LSM - Architecture differences compared to InnoDB - LSM databases -- HBase and RocksDB - RocksDB Storage Engine for MySQL - Some benchmark numbers - Case Studies at Facebook
