Enter in the world of NoSQL engines

Sometimes ago, I had to discover a source code, as is. It was a database engine. A big software, powered by C/C++ using linux tools. I always install cygwin on my machines so there was no problem. Tools where Bison, lex and sed. Some bash scripts to put files on common folders & some other stuff. The storage engine was powered with LMDB. It’s the fastest engine on the market, they said in a README.MD. There was also a data structure that was associated with a registered patent.

I have read a lot of wikipedia on NoSQL engines and I have inspected a lot of source code like LMDB and Redis. It’s all about C, it’s brutal and very efficient. It fascinates me. And so what for ?

I currently work on a R&D project to put a NoSQL engine on a Windows service and install it on a Docker image and run it in Azure Container Instances (ACI). As a Micrcosoft partner, my company has to work with Azure and win competencies. Because it’s a R&D project, we have ambitions : make a Redis like software. With distributed features. We want superior performance versus DocumentDB. It will be powered by LMDB. More to come in coming weeks. Stay tuned.
