a very informative podcast interview

TiDB: Distributed NewSQL with Kevin Xu - Software Engineering Daily

"TiDB is an open source database built on RocksDB and Kubernetes. TiDB is widely used in China by high volume applications such as bike sharing and massively multiplayer online games. Kevin Xu works at PingCAP, a company built around TiDB. He joins the show to talk about modern databases, distributed systems, and the architecture for TiDB."

"TiDB (The pronunciation is: /'taɪdiːbi:/ tai-D-B, etymology: titanium) is an open-source distributed scalable Hybrid Transactional and Analytical Processing (HTAP) database. It features horizontal scalability, strong consistency, and high availability.
TiDB is MySQL compatible and serves as a one-stop data warehouse for both OLTP (Online Transactional Processing) and OLAP (Online Analytical Processing) workloads."

in GoLang :)



"Hybrid transaction/analytical processing (HTAP) is an emerging application architecture that “breaks the wall” between transaction processing and analytics. It enables more informed and “in business real time” decision making."
