To meet the demands of modern applications, relational databases need a radically new architecture — one designed from the ground up to handle voluminous data and transaction loads, resist different types of failure and function seamlessly during times of peak demand without manual intervention or patchwork scaling strategies. 

TiDB is a prime example of this new style of database architecture. As an open-source distributed SQL database, it’s designed for the most demanding applications, scaling out to handle data volumes up to a petabyte in size. 

Join Sunny Bains, Software Architect at PingCAP, as he provides expert insights into TiDB’s Distributed eXecution Framework (DXF), a unified scheduling and task execution tool for managing resource usage in distributed architecture. You’ll discover:

  • Why a framework like this is even necessary
  • DXF design fundamentals and implementation principles
  • DXF common use cases including unified capabilities for high scalability, high availability, and high performance
  • Key results from PingCAP’s real-world testing

We hope to see you there.

Software Architect, PingCAP

Sunny Bains is a software architect at PingCAP, the company behind TiDB. He has worked on storage engines for more than 22 years. His first acquaintance with database kernel work was in 2001, when he was tasked with writing a database engine from scratch. In 2006, he joined the Oracle InnoDB team and was the team lead from 2013 . While there, he fixed all the core InnoDB bottlenecks and made it scale to what it is today. Some of his other contributions include parallel scanning of the B-tree, parallel DDL, and the full-text search core.
