Membase NoSQL: Clustered by Erlang

Membase, created by some of the top contributors to the memcached project, had a need for a distributed system when building the Membase NoSQL database. The system had to ultra-reliable, portable, and easy to program.  Building on Erlang and OTP to manage the existing core runtime, the membase project able to quickly build a simple, fast, elastic NoSQL database.

This talk will show how Membase clustering comes together, talking about the successes, design decisions and challenges encountered along the way.
Behaviour Driven Design comes to Erlang with cucumberl

Erlang OTP was the platform of choice when building Membase's clustering.  Ensuring membase is tested is important, and behavior driven development (BDD) is one efficient way to ensure software matches it's intended behavior.  Cucumber is BDD done with "elegance and joy", so Steve Yen of Membase, Inc. authored and Open Sourced cucumberl for BDD with Erlang.  Learn the basics of BDD, cucumberl, and how to contribute.
