The Lightning Memory-Mapped Database (LMDB) was introduced at LDAPCon 2011 and has been enjoying tremendous success in the intervening time. LMDB was written for the OpenLDAP Project and has proved to be the worldâs smallest, fastest, and most reliable transactional embedded data store. It has cemented OpenLDAPâs position as worldâs fastest directory server, and its adoption outside the OpenLDAP Project continues to grow, with a wide range of applications including big data services, crypto-currencies, machine learning, and many others.
The talk will cover highlights of the LMDB design as well as the impact of LMDB on other projects.
Howard Chu has been writing Free/Open Source software since the 1980s. His work has spanned a wide range of computing topics, including most of the GNU utilities (gcc, gdb, gmake, etc.), networking protocols and tools, kernel and filesystem drivers, and focused on maximizing the useful work from a system. Howard has led the OpenLDAP Project since 2007 and his experience has made OpenLDAP the world's fastest and most efficient directory software since 2005.
