Video: tin, a NoSQL solution for sequential data

tin is a database engine so tiny, its name had to be shortened. More specifically, tin focuses on storage, retrieval, subscription and transformation of sequential data. Like many other “NoSQL” solutions, it is not meant as a general-use RDBMS replacement but finds all its strength when handling data such as Facebook walls, Twitter feeds or any multi-dimensional data that is primarily served or ordered along a single dimension (or single set of dimensions). The approach at the core of tin was first tested on financial data, in the back-end delivery service behind Nasdaq’s Market Replay —- where it was able to serve petabytes worth of stock prices daily without breaking a sweat (or the piggy bank).
