Building A Relational Database Using Kafka

Building A Relational Database Using Kafka

In a previous post, I showed how Kafka can be used as the persistent storage for an embedded key-value store, called KCache. Once you have a key-value store, it can be used as the basis for other models such as documents, graphs, and even SQL. For example, CockroachDB is a SQL layer built on top…
