SAM SIG: Project Voldemort: Scalable Fault Tolerant Distributed Storage at LinkedIn




    Project Voldemort: Scalable Fault Tolerant Distributed Storage at LinkedIn


    Web-scale computing has created a need to efficiently store and manage massive data sets with high read/write loads. The majority of applications don't need relational features but need high scalability and performance. 

    At LinkedIn we saw the same issues and have developed Project-Voldemort as a distributed, highly scalable Key Value Storage System based on the Amazon Dynamo project.

    We will discuss Project-Voldemort architecture, design choices and future roadmap. We will also talk about Project-Voldemort usage at LinkedIn and how it helps LinkedIn serve its many data intensive applications.
