Going Barking Mad with DalmatinerDB

Heinz Gies
Cloud Shepherd

DalmatinerDB is a time series database written from scratch for metrics collection on top of Riak Core. It supports dimensional data, complex queries and has the most efficient storage format of any current time series database. Steven (Dataloop) and Heinz (Project Fifo) will discuss the background, some of the frustrations with other databases and how DalmatinerDB is solving them.

Talk objectives:

Get some traction behind the DalmatinerDB open source project.

Target audience:

Anyone interested in Erlang / Elixir and who likes metrics.


Heinz started his career in the Telco industry. Ending up as a Senior Engineer for Nokia Siemens Networks before venturing on it’s own. With a love for interesting technologies like Solaris or Erlang he started to make a living out of that passion. Now he works as a freelancer building and supporting the Project-FiFo cloud orchestration suite.
