TiDB: Distributed, horizontally scalable, MySQL compatible

TiDB is an open source distributed scalable hybrid transactional

and analytical processing (HTAP) database built by PingCAP. It also

speaks the MySQL protocol and uses RocksDB as the underlying storage


This talk provides an introduction and overview of TiDB, tailored for

those with a strong background in MySQL. I will use MySQL as an

example to explain various implementation details of TiDB, and

translate terminology to MySQL/InnoDB terms.

Speaker Bio:

Morgan Tocker is a Senior Product and Community Manager at PingCAP,

the company behind TiDB. He was previously the Product Manager for

the MySQL Server at Oracle.
