  • tikv

    Distributed transactional key-value database, originally created to complement TiDB

    Project mention: just wanted to ask is there an in memory database that uses s3 or gcp cloud storage as permanent storage | /r/Database | 2023-07-04

    I know that very similar functionality to this is in TiDB Serverless ( ). TiDB is a distributed relational database. It uses TiKV ( which is a key/value engine ) as the storage engine. You could use SQL to access your K/V records. There is ongoing work in TiKV to support S3 directly as the storage backend ( ) .

    Project mention: What’s everyone working on this week (8/2023)? | /r/rust | 2023-02-21

    Still learning Rust by building a REPL and a library to use and query a Bitcask datastore. Done at 80 % (you know the Pareto principle, don't you?) Trying to write as idiomatic as possible.
