CockroachDB: the SQL database as resilient as its namesake (Restore it All Podcast #117)

Start listening

Dave Lukens from Cockroach Labs joins us to discuss CochroachDB, a highly resilient ACID-compliant SQL database. We discuss the CAP theorum, which says you can choose any two from Consistency, Availability, and Partition Tolerance – but you can’t have all three. We talk about which two they chose, and why they believe they’re the most resilient SQL database. We also, of course, discuss how you back this monster up! (We also discuss why it’s named CockroachDB, and it’s exactly what we thought!)
