At TiDB DevCon 2020, Max Liu, CEO at PingCAP, gave a keynote speech. He believes that today's database should be more flexible, more real-time, and easier to use, and TiDB, an elastic, cloud-native, real-time HTAP database, is exactly that kind of database.
This post introduces the design details of the HTAP architecture of TiDB, including the real-time updatable columnar engine, the multi-Raft replication strategy, and smart selection.
TiDB Cloud Beta is released. It's the easiest, most economical, and most resilient way to unlock the full power of TiDB in the cloud, allowing the users to deploy and run TiDB clusters with just a few clicks.
PingCAP will publish a research paper "TiDB: A Raft-based HTAP Database" in the August issue of the Proceedings of the VLDB Endowment.
