I have been reading up on log structured file systems, efficient data formats, database storage engines and copy-on-write semantics for a little more than week now… reading about the pros and cons of different approaches and seeing it all come together so smoothly in a single design like Couch’s really deserves a hat-tip to the Couch team.
Great post looking at the pros of CouchDB storage format and the tradeoffs the team made on the way.
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
