Many years ago I sat next to a Couchbase exec at a VLDB event and was explained on how awesome their new storage engine was especially when compared to RocksDB. That new engine was based on ForestDB and while the idea was interesting the engine was never finished. On the bright side I got to meet the clever person who invented the ForestDB algorithm and had fun evaluating the perf claims (blog posts A, B, C, D).At last, Couchbase has a new storage named Magma. The VLDB paper is worth reading, the engine design is interesting and the product is… Read more

It has speculation, unanswered questions and likely has several mistakes or things I omitted because I was not aware… Read more
