RavenDB Conf VideosTailored database solutions with Voron

time to read 1 min | 36 words

In this talk, I’m creating, live on stage, a database for handling time series data with the goal of handling 100 billion events per year.

And it actually worked!

Dan Liebster

This is a really interesting presentation. You stated in the presentation that Voron itself will not be a product. I understand that you are going to use it as the underlying datastore for RavenDB, but will the Voron trees be completely abstracted away, or will you be augmenting the RavenDB API's so that there will be the possibility of using trees more directly (as you do in this presentation for time-series data)?

Dan, Voron really is too low level for most business apps needs. And there is a LOT more to building data stores than just knowing the API. There are a lot of additional concerns. We intend to use Voron as the building block for customized data solutions.

That doesn't mean we won't be licensing this out if people really want this, but it would likely be a very different model than RavenDB.
