Join Percona CTO Vadim Tkachenko at the Cloud Native Utah meetup in Salt Lake City on Tuesday, May 8, 2018, for an Intro to ClickHouse.
Next week, I’ll be switching from MyRocks performance testing and present an introduction to ClickHouse to the Cloud Native Utah meetup.
Interestingly enough, even though it is totally different from OLTP engines, ClickHouse uses a MergeTree engine. MergeTree engines have a lot of similarities with Log Structured Merge Tree (which is what is used by MyRocks / RocksDB). This the structure is optimized to run on huge datasets / low memory scenarios.
PingCAP TiDB and CockroachDB – the new databases on the block – are using RocksDB as the main storage engine. So is Log Structured Merge Tree the future of databases?
We can talk about this and other questions next week in Salt Lake City. If you are in town please join us at the Cloud Native Utah meetup.
