[Vaccination 2022] SpiceDB: Flexible Permissions Database for the Internet Era (Jake Moshenko)
In this talk, we will walk through the architecture and implementation of SpiceDB, an open-source permissions database. As an implementation of Google’s Zanzibar (the singular global-scale authorization service that powers permissions and sharing across all Google properties) paper, he will focus heavily on facets of the database that allow it to run highly scalably, with low latency and incredible reliability. He will also cover some of the innovations that have made the database service easier to understand and consume.
This talk is part of the Vaccination Database (Booster) Tech Talk Seminar Series.
Jake Moshenko is an engineering leader that has been building infrastructure tools and services for over 15 years for large companies and startups alike. Having previously struggled to keep up with customer permissions demands on products such as CoreOS’s Quay and Tectonic, he was searching for a better way to do application permissions.
