Seastar, the advanced open-source C++ framework continues to gain traction. Most well known for being the engine at the heart of Scylla, the monstrously-fast NoSQL database, Seastar is also now at the core of other exciting new projects. And now we’ll be bringing together developer practitioners from around the world to the first-ever Seastar Summit.
ScyllaDB’s Glauber Costa explores cgroups and systemd, and how these can be used to define slices which can be used to protect database performance.

The leader of the […]
In the run-up to Scylla Summit 2018, we’ll be featuring our speakers and providing sneak peaks at their presentations. The first interview in this series is with ScyllaDB’s own Glauber Costa. Glauber, your talk is entitled “Keeping Your Latency SLAs No Matter What!” How did you come up with this topic? Last year I gave a talk at Scylla Summit where I unequivocally stated that we view latency spikes as a bug. If they are a bug, that means we should fix them so I also talked about some of the techniques that we used to do that. But you […]
