Getting from Schemaless Ingest to Fast SQL at Rockset
Rockset provides low-latency SQL access to schemaless data that is ingested in real-time. Immediate access to dynamically structured data is very powerful, enabling rapid development and iteration for products built on top, but it needs to be baked into the design and implementation from the start. Rockset’s architecture incorporates ideas from search engines, OLTP databases, and OLAP engines. In this talk we will present some of the database and low-level C++ programming techniques we use to get excellent performance and efficiency over dynamic data.
