Reactive Storage

A session at React San Francisco 2014

  • Andrew Stewart

Wednesday 19th November, 2014

2:30pm to 3:30pm (PST)

So, you're building responsive and resilient applications, scaling to deal with an ever expanding firehose of events arriving at your front door. You're filling storage by the terabyte without even trying, and that needs to be resilient, and responsive, and scalable too. So obviously you're storing your data using... well... what? Is there really a single technology that meets all your needs for persistence? And are the 'conventional' technologies really a lost cause?

In this talk we'll look at some of the successful - and less successful - strategies for managing high-frequency, high-volume data. We will explore what is technically possible when you need to record millions of messages per second durably without a bottomless budget, review the common storage options and what they are capable of, and also look at what is possible when you're willing to roll up your sleeves and write your own storage engine.
