In this episode, Tamer Eldeeb sheds light on the challenges faced by geo-distributed database management systems (DBMSes) in supporting strictly-serializable transactions across multiple regions. He discusses the compromises often made between low-latency regional writes and restricted programming models in existing DBMS solutions. Tamer introduces Chablis, a groundbreaking geo-distributed, multi-versioned transactional key-value store designed to overcome these limitations.
Chablis offers a general interface accommodating range and point reads, along with writes within multi-step strictly-serializable ACID transactions. Leveraging advancements in low-latency datacenter networks and innovative DBMS designs, Chablis eliminates the need for compromises, ensuring fast read-write transactions with low latency within a single region, while enabling global strictly-serializable lock-free snapshot reads. Join us as we explore the transformative potential of Chablis in revolutionizing the landscape of geo-distributed DBMSes and facilitating seamless transactional operations across distributed environments.
