Facebook's RocksDB for Flash Storage - The What, Why & How.

  • Feb 13, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • LSI

RocksDB is an embeddable key value store optimized for fast flash storage.

This talk describes the reasons why Facebook decided to build yet another key-value store, the vision and architecture of RocksDB and how it differs from other open source key-value stores. Facebook engineers describes some of the salient features in RocksDB that are needed for supporting embedded-storage deployments. Typical workloads that are the primary use-cases for RocksDB would be discussed. Additionally, they would highlight the roadmap to make RocksDB the key-value store of choice for highly-multi-core processors and RAM-speed storage devices.
