PingCAP shares papers about an HTAP database at VLDB

The 46th International Conference on Very Large Databases (VLDB) will be broadcast online from August 31st to September 4th. VLDB is a premier annual international forum for data management and database researchers, vendors, practitioners, application developers, and users. VLDB2020 will feature research talks, tutorials, demonstrations, and workshops. PingCAP is honored and proud to attend this conference, with two selected papers to be shared with you.

It's worth noting that the talks are pre-recorded. Considering the time differences, each session will be broadcast twice, and the author will be available for an online Q&A during one of the sessions. The detailed schedule for PingCAP sessions is as follows:

  • TiDB: A Raft-based HTAP Database

    Authors of TiDB: A Raft-based HTAP Database

    In this paper, we propose TiDB as a Hybrid Transactional/Analytical Processing (HTAP) database—a "one size fits many" solution for OLTP and OLAP applications.

    This is the first paper in the industry on the implementation of a distributed real-time HTAP database. The author will be available for a live QA in the day one session.

    Presented by: Ed Huang, CTO and Cofounder at PingCAP

    Schedule:

    • Wednesday, September 2nd, 2020, 7:00 [Tue, Sep 1st, 23:00 UTC] (Primary session with live Q&A from the author)
    • Thursday, September 3rd 2020, 18:00 [10:00 UTC], 2020 (Re-play session)
  • Interleaved Multi-Vectorizing

    This paper proposes interleaved multi-vectorizing (IMV), a new approach that reduces cache misses, branch misses, and computational overhead for an application at the same time. This is in contrast to pure scalar implementation and pure Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) vectorization. The author will be available for a live QA in the day one session.

    Interleaved Multi-Vectorizing

    Presented by: Dr. Zhuhe Fang, Database Engineer at PingCAP.

    Schedule:

    • Wednesday, September 2nd, 2020, 7:00 [Tue, Sep 1st, 23:00 UTC] (Primary session with live Q&A from the author)
    • Thursday, September 3rd, 2020, 18:00 [10:00 UTC]
