After a long reign as the dominant on-disk data structure for databases and filesystems, B-trees are slowly being replaced by write-optimized data structures, to handle ever-growing volumes of data. Some write optimization techniques, like LSM-trees, give up some of the query performance of B-trees in order to achieve this.

This time I will cover B-Trees, LSM Trees and Fractal Trees papers and provide some real world use cases (and data) along with the a discussion on the respective papers.
