Advanced Pushdown With MyTile Storage Engine


MyTile, a storage engine built on top of the open source TileDB storage engine, supports a number of advanced features such as read/write cloud object storage access, lock-free multi-reader/multi-writer, and more. This talk will focus on how we’ve optimized pushdown of filtering and computations to TileDB. Emphasis will be placed on the storage API features used, such as condition pushdown and multi-range reads.
