Pivotal Labs Talks: Hypertable and Rails: DB Scaling Solutions with HyperRecord
Every site based on a RDBMS will eventually hit a database scalability bottleneck. In this session we will introduce Hypertable, an open-source implementation of BigTable, and HyperRecord, an extension of ActiveRecord using Hypertable for storage. We will demonstrate Zvents' use of these technologies to scale a high-traffic, data-intensive consumer web application, writing billions of cells daily.
