The Hive is pleased to host a Tech Talk with Dhruba Borthakur & Haobo Xu of Facebook on December 9th, 2013. RSVP with Full Name, Last Name & Email address is required to attend this event.

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. Dhruba describes some of the salient features in RocksDB that are needed for supporting embedded-storage deployments. Dhruba explains typical workloads that could be the primary use-cases for RocksDB. He also lays out the roadmap to make RocksDB the key-value store of choice for highly-multi-core processors and RAM-speed storage devices.

About the Speakers:

Dhruba Borthakur is an engineer in the Database Engineering Team at Facebook. Dhruba's current focus is to design and develop RocksDB, a key-value store for multi-core processors and fast storage. He had been one of the founding contributors for the Apache Hadoop Distributed File System. He has been associated with Hadoop since its inception while working for Yahoo. He is instrumental in scaling Facebook's Hadoop cluster to multiples of petabytes. Dhruba is also a contributor to the open source Apache HBase project.

Dhruba has an M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and a B.S. in Computer Science BITS, Pilani, India. He hosts a Hadoop blog at http://hadoopblog.blogspot.com/

Haobo Xu is a software engineer at Facebook and works in the RocksDB engineering team. He also spent a couple of years at Oracle, working on high-performance database server replication solutions, with expertise in lockless in-memory data structure and dependency-aware parallel apply of relicated transactions.

Haobo graduated from the University of Science and Technology in China, with dual degrees in applied physics and computer science. He was a post-qual Ph.D. candidate at Stanford, building distributed framework for automatic task decomposition and complex problem solving.
