Title: LeanStore: In-Memory Data Management Beyond Main Memory

LeanStore is a high-performance OLTP storage engine optimized for many-core CPUs and NVMe SSDs. The goal of the project is to achieve performance comparable to in-memory systems when the data set fits into RAM, while being able to fully exploit the bandwidth of fast NVMe SSDs for large data sets. In this talk, I will present most of the important techniques used by LeanStore, including its low-overhead buffer manager, scalable synchronization primitives, optimized B-tree indexes, and an efficient logging and recovery implementation.

This talk is part of the Vaccination Database Tech Talk Seminar Series.
