  • Composing generic data structures in go
    3 projects | dev.to | 30 Nov 2021
    Recently a colleague, Nathan, reflecting on CockroachDB, remarked (paraphrased from memory) that the key data structure is the interval btree. The story of Nathan’s addition of the first interval btree to cockroach and the power of copy-on-write data structures is worthy of its own blog post for another day. It’s Nathan’s hand-specialization of that data structure that provided the basis (and tests) for the generalization I’ll be presenting here. The reason for this specialization was as much for the performance wins of avoiding excessive allocations, pointer chasing, and cost of type assertions when using interface boxing.
  • Stacked changes: how FB and Google engineers stay unblocked and ship faster
    12 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 17 Nov 2021
    I'm surprised Reviewable[0] hasn't come up in this discussion. It does a great job of allowing stacked code reviews and even handles rebases nicely; the reviewer sees the diff between commit #1 and commit #1' (prime = after rebase).

    CockroachDB[1] has been using it since very early in the project.

    And even if you did want to run your database on a bunch of untrusted machines, a blockchain, being a linked list, is not a particularly efficient implementation. Its size increases linearly with the number of operations, which, for any rapid-fire application such as banking, means you have a tremendously inefficient marginal computational and storage cost per operation. You’d be considerably better off running something like Cockroach, or FoundationDB, or more ‘out-there’ offerings like Hypercore.

  • Design to Duty: How we make architecture decisions at Adyen
    1 project | dev.to | 28 Jul 2021
    As you now know, we do not want to achieve this by restricting payments of some merchants to certain machines, as this would mean the machines are no longer linearly scalable. The information needs to be available locally, so we eventually decided on integrating Cockroach, a distributed database, with our PALs.

  • What is Cost-based Optimization?

    In CockroachDB, the cost is an abstract 64-bit floating-point scalar value.
  • #30DaysofAppwrite : Appwrite’s building blocks
    3 projects | dev.to | 3 May 2021
    Appwrite uses MariaDB as the default database for project collections, documents, and all other metadata. Appwrite is agnostic to the database you use under the hood and support for more databases like Postgres, CockroachDB, MySQL and MongoDB is currently under active development! 😊
  • I am building a Serverless version of Redis - written in Rust
    7 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 2 May 2021
    For me, if you look back to when Redis has been designed - 11 years ago, it was before the Cloud was a thing. Since then, you have Cloud alternatives that are mostly proprietary. The idea of RedisLess is not competing against a product that is existing for 11 years but showing a new path of how we can build a system on top of an existing one. You can see RedisLess as experimentation. How to build Cloud-native databases by taking advantage of existing solutions? TiDB, Yugabyte, CockroachDB are great examples of being MySQL wire protocol compatible and providing a Cloud way of managing data.
