Tech Talk: Embedded Time Series Storage: A Cookbook


Recently Hazelcast Management Center team faced the challenge of finding the right way to store large volumes of time series data.

After considering all possible options, we had to build an embedded Java time series storage on top of existing well-known components.

In this (very) practical talk we are going to discuss technical challenges and design decisions made during the process.

The talk explains the basic principles of time-series data processing and how they affected the design of our TS storage.
