Datomic: Distributed Database Designed to Enable Scalable, Flexible and Intelligent Applications, Running on Next-Generation Cloud Architectures

I’m just starting to read about Datomic a distributed database designed to enable scalable, flexible and intelligent applications, running on next-generation cloud architectures. Skimming through the whitepaper:

  • it goes after relational databases calling out the same problems as those formulated by Michael Stonebraker
  • it also goes after NoSQL databases (ACID transactions, Joins, logical query language)
  • my first reaction is that it’s pretty similar to Gigaspaces, Terracotta, etc.
  • it uses an interesting immutable timestamped data model (CQRS?)
  • it’s completely unclear to me why the production service must be AWS
  • the team behind Datomic: Rich Hickey (Clojure), Stuart Halloway (Clojure), Justin Gehtland
