Evolving the Key/Value Programming Model to a Higher Level
Jan 19, 2010
In this presentation from QCon San Francisco 2009, Billy Newport discusses the ways that developers interact with key/value (KV) stores such as memcached and WebSphere eXtreme Scale, entity vs column-oriented approaches, synchronous and asynchronous operations, large data sets, using a DBMS as a column store, collocating closures and data, and features that could be added to increase scalability.
