Venue: Conference Room, 01st Floor, ‘C’ Block, Dept. of CSE, Kanwal Rekhi Bldg.
Yahoo! has been an internet pioneer and a trendsetter in storage and database technology since the late 1990s. Many key technologies -- from distributed storage to search indexes to scalable Map Reduce -- were invented, matured and open sourced at Yahoo!. Over the years, at Yahoo, we have built numerous NoSQL platforms that address the growing scalability needs of Yahoo! properties. Key features include high scalability, elastic growth, global footprint for local low-latency access, asynchronous replication, RESTful web service APIs, novel per-record consistency knobs, high availability, low capex and opex, and many more. In this talk, we present the challenges faced by a growing internet company while building large scale storage for millions of users, and how innovations and unique technology have evolved to solve some of those challenges.
