In this talk we will go into the details that actually make up the different components in a database, discuss how they are put together and what are the different design choices that you have for each of those components and how they work together. We will cover on-disk and in-memory storage, transactions and ACID, Write-Ahead Logging & Append-Only mode and a lot of details about how databases (relational and NOSQL) are put together.
