Each week at Whitepages, we host various individuals from throughout the tech community for our Tech Talks. The point of our Tech Talk program is to bring these individuals together to continue to learn from one another, and get exposure to top-of-mind technologies. Follow along below gain insight into each of these technologies from the industry’s experts.
Google Cloud BigTable
In this Tech Talk, Paul Newson, Google Developer Advocate, presents Google Cloud BigTable (From Bigtable to HBase and Back Again – History and Future). Paul discusses the evolution of BigTable, it’s architecture, the latest cloud hosted offering of this service, and some of the insights and innovation that allow crazy high throughput and low latency.
Chain Replication Supporting High Throughput and Availability
David Murray presents chain replication, a high-throughput alternative to quorum-based replication protocols like PAXOS and RAFT.
Scalability Meetup – Erlang VM
Eric Merritt discusses the design choices of the Erlang OTP VM that allow it to provide an outstanding platform for building highly fault tolerant and both vertically and horizontally scalable systems.
