Rockset enables SQL queries on schemaless datasets. We designed a search and analytics platform for low query latency and data latency by exploiting the hardware fluidity of the cloud. This talk will cover the challenges and opportunities in architecting modern databases including:
- Types: How should databases react to schema changes that occur frequently with semi-structured data? We opted for strong dynamic typing or a type system that allows for ingesting any semi-structured data set and presenting them as SQL tables.
- Indexing: How can we use indexing to make queries faster? We built for speed with converged indexing- creating inverted indexes and columnar indexes on all fields.
- Scaling: How can we take advantage of the hardware fluidity of the cloud in designing databases? We chose fluid compute management using custom cloud schedulers and elastic storage management using cloud object stores.
