Talk Proposal: Managing Normalised Data in a Distributed Store

I’ve been working on a medium sized data store (around half a TB) that provides high bandwidth and low latency access to data.

Caching and Warehousing techniques push you towards denormalisation but this becomes increasingly problematic when you move to a highly distributed environment (certainly if the data is long lived). We’ve worked on a model that is semi normalised whilst retaining the performance benefits associated with denormalisation.

The other somewhat novel attribute of the system is its use of Messaging as a system of record.

I did a talk abstract, which David Felcey from Oracle very kindly helped with, which describes the work in brief. You can find it here.

I’ll also be adding some more posts in the near future to flesh out how this all works.
