The Distributed Database Internals of InfluxDB

About the talk

In this talk we'll go over the design considerations, technologies, and tradeoffs of InfluxDB, an open source distributed time series, events, and metrics database. We'll talk about how data is replicated within a cluster, how failover occurs, and the evolution of how we decided to split data across a cluster of machines. We'll touch on distributed consensus with Raft, replication fault tolerance with a write ahead log, and how we schedule frequent tasks to run in a reliable way across a cluster.

    Thanks! Should we expect any beer or pizza? I doubt it, given the short notice on the venue change - but always good to ask.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
