Recording: .NET Rocks Data Sharding with Oren Eini
This was actually released a while ago, I was occupied with other matters and missed that.
I had a blast talking with Carl & Richard about data sharding and how we implemented that in RavenDB.
What is data sharding, and why do you need it? Carl and Richard talk to Oren Eini about his latest work on RavenDB, including the new data sharding feature. Oren talks about the power of sharding a database across multiple servers to improve performance on massive data sets. While a sharded database is typically in a single data center, it is possible to distribute the shards across multiple locations. The conversation explores the advantages and disadvantages of the different approaches, including that you might not need it today, but it’s great to know it’s there when you do!
