Next Gen Ubik and the VLDB


Presenter:
  • Andrew Deason, Sine Nomine Associates
Abstract:

Like all ubik databases in Openafs, the VLDB currently uses a custom on-disk format that has numerous annoyances and limitations. In this talk, we’ll look at some recent work to migrate to a VLDB built on existing key-value databases instead, as well as some new tools for upgrading/downgrading the VLDB and more.
