But Why Reinvent the Wheel? The Case for (Yet Another) Distributed Database

This talk was held on Wednesday, November 20, 2019

The Data Infrastructure team at Indeed uses many open source technologies to provide a data platform for the rest of the company. But sometimes, the team encounters problems that existing solutions can’t solve, and we have to build something new for the platform. In this presentation, you’ll get an overview of the distributed storage technology space and some of its most interesting challenges. You will also learn about one significant problem Indeed was facing that led us to build an entirely new in-house database.
