Redpanda talk at Performance Summit

On Dec 1st, I gave a talk at Performance Summit titled "Redpanda: A new storage engine built from the ground up for Kafka-API compatibility with Kernel bypass technologies for 10x lower tail latencies."

The talk covers how we built a new storage engine from scratch using a thread per core architecture for predictable tail latencies. We dive deep into the challenges of adapting a well known protocol (Kafka-API) on top of this new storage engine and the performance gains of optimizing for modern hardware.

Here for your viewing pleasure is the video of that talk:
