TiDB Cloud’s Serverless Tier enables developers to quickly deliver applications at scale without the need for infrastructure management. However, building a serverless database-as-a-service (DBaaS) platform is a complex and challenging task due to latency requirements and significant computing resources. 

In this webinar, we’ll explore the challenges of building a serverless DBaaS platform, and how we overcame them by re-architecting several core components of TiDB. We will also demo several key components of our solution, including:

  • An isolated pool of stateless components providing high isolation among tenants. 
  • A shared storage engine layer for large-scale key-value stores supporting high storage utilization.
  • A federated file system built on a public object storage service for a cost-efficient, scalable, and highly-durable storage backend.
