Inside CockroachDB’s Survivability Model
This talk takes a deep dive into CockroachDB, a database whose “survive and thrive” model aims to bring the best aspects of Google's next generation database, Spanner, to the rest of the world via open source. We will look specifically at CockroachDB’s operations and deployment model, exploring how rebalancing, repair, and symmetric nodes combine to create both simple deployment and a strong recovery story. We will then explore how you can both contribute to it and use it to build scalable, resilient applications that can be deployed to any cloud infrastructure.
