John Hugg, VoltDB

New England Database Summit 2013


The original VoltDB academic papers leverage determinism to achieve high performance. John's talk at MIT's New England Database Day explores determinism in detail and provides specific insight into the following areas:


  • What is determinism in the context of distributed databases?
  • What are some basic sources of non-determinism and how can they be addressed?
  • In what awesome ways can determinism be leveraged in distributed systems?
  • How can non-determinism risks be mitigated and what are some interesting related engineering tradeoffs?
