Abstract
Web applications (web mail, web stores, social networks, etc) keep massive amounts of data that must be readily available to users.  The storage system underlying these applications has evolved dramatically over the past 25 years, from file systems, to SQL database systems, to a large variety of NOSQL systems. In this talk, we contemplate this fascinating history and present a new storage system called Yesquel. Yesquel combines several advantages of prior systems. It supports the SQL query language to facilitate the design of Web applications, while offering performance and scalability competitive with a widely used NOSQL system.
