Log-structured merge (LSM) trees have emerged as one of the most commonly used storage-based data structures in modern data systems as they offer high throughput for writes and good utilization of storage space. In this episode, Subhadeep Sarkar presents the fundamental principles of the LSM paradigm. He tells us about recent research on improving write performance and the various optimization techniques and hybrid designs adopted by LSM engines to accelerate reads. Tune in to find out more!
