Rich Hickey, author of Clojure, and designer of Datomic presents a new way to look at database architectures in this talk from JaxConf 2012. What happens when you deconstruct the traditional monolithic database – separating transaction processing, storage and query into independent cooperating services? Coupled with a data model based around atomic facts and awareness of time, you get a significantly different set of capabilities and tradeoffs. This talk with discuss how these ideas play out in the design and architecture of Datomic, a new database for the JVM. Filming: Marakana Tech TV
