Building InfluxDB 3.0 using Modular Open Source Components

In this talk, we will describe the design of InfluxDB 3.0's new high performance time series database engine using Apache Arrow, DataFusion, Parquet and Rust.

 This design provides a fast and highly interoperable analytic system without a tightly integrated codebase built from scratch. It is part of a larger trend in database system design, so called deconstructed databases, where high performance interchange standards and high quality open source components form the foundation for high performance and highly interoperable specialized analytic systems.

GraphRAG - Connecting the Dots for Information Discovery

Wednesday Apr 10 / 11:45AM BST

The classic RAG application extends an LLM with private information, able to fetch answers to questions that are contained in a single chunk of text. What if the answer requires connecting the dots across multiple chunks that may not be directly similar to the question?

Simplifying Streaming Data Transforms with WebAssembly

Wednesday Apr 10 / 10:35AM BST

The majority of stream processing work is spent on mundane transformation tasks like scrubbing, normalisation, and filtering. Yet to perform these relatively simple tasks involves standing up multiple distributed systems that add complexity and take time to learn.
