Really excited for this! Just submitted a talk around a new deterministic LSM-tree storage engine for TigerBeetle  written in Zig and using io_uring with some new ideas for pipelined/incremental/streaming compaction and how the storage engine integrates with the distributed consensus protocol. @ifreund and myself did a live stream  giving a high-level overview of some of these ideas today. Would love to talk more at hytradboi. Also awesome to see Frank McSherry on the list!
That sounds really interesting. I’ll check out the video.
This looks great! I’m all for database-centric architectures. am a big fan of Materialize (right in the process of introducing it in a project I’m working in) and followed Eve closely when it was still alive. (I created the little bouncing ball example that became a benchmark of sorts towards the end.) Will definitely try to participate in this!
What are Materialize and Eve? I’m puzzled by “little bouncing ball” and relationship with databases — that sounds pretty interesting!
Materialize is a streaming database based on differential dataflow, from Frank McSherry and team. McSherry is well-known for his “Cost that outperforms single-threaded” (COST) paper [PDF].
This is one of my favorite papers from Frank McSherry. The other being “A COOL AND PRACTICAL ALTERNATIVE TO TRADITIONAL HASH TABLES” which is a great intro to Cuckoo hashing, and a great analysis: https://www.ru.is/faculty/ulfar/CuckooHash.pdf
