This presentation describes the reasons why Facebook decided to build yet another key-value store, the vision and architecture of RocksDB and how it differs from other open source key-value stores. Dhruba describes some of the salient features in RocksDB that are needed for supporting embedded-storage deployments. He explains typical workloads that could be the primary use-cases for RocksDB. He also lays out the roadmap to make RocksDB the key-value store of choice for highly-multi-core processors and RAM-speed storage devices.
