Drizzle is a transactional, relational, community-driven open-source database that is forked from the popular MySQL database. The Drizzle team has removed non-essential code, has re-factored the remaining code, and has converted the code to modern C++ and modern libraries.
It aims to be optimized for Cloud infrastructure and Web applications, designed for massive concurrency on modern multi-CPU architectures and optimize memory use for increased performance and parallelism. This video provides an overview of the Drizzle project’s current state as well as what’s ahead.
