Under the Hood ForestDB: Performance on SSDs and File Systems

As Solid-State Drives (SSDs) support orders of magnitude faster I/O operations than spinning hard disks, they have been replacing spinning disks and are being deployed rapidly in data centers. Consequently, it becomes quite crucial to optimize database storage engines by considering the unique characteristics and performance behaviors of SSDs. In this session, we explain how optimizations for ForestDB work. Learn how you can reduce write amplification and utilize parallel I/O capabilities in ForestDB-, and discuss other optimizations in the roadmap for the next generation storage engine.
