Subject Re: Distributed key valute store using bookkeeper
Date Mon, 15 Feb 2016 09:00:23 GMT
Actually we need at least CAS operations ("set foo='a' if foo='b'") and
something like "secondary" indexes.
Another important fact is that in my case write operations will be a lot
more than read operations.
We need to scale up to thousands of tables.
We do not need "joins".
We need to have transactions which span multiple tables but not potentially
all tables. We work in a multi-tenant environment and so tables can be
grouped by 'tenant', every read/write access is relative only to the tables
of a single tenant.
We would like physical data to reside "near" the JVMs which use data more

As we are using a lot Bookkeeper we are evaluating to start a new (open
source) project which will implement the basic operations we need.
