When ETS Is Too Slow

Mark Allen
Software Developer @ Basho Technologies

Caching values in an ETS table is a common idiom in many Erlang applications, but what should you do when ETS becomes too slow or latent? This talk examines good, bad and ugly ways to make data caching faster and/or more concurrent.

Talk objectives:

To help developers who are bumping against the limits of ETS for some reason.

Target audience:

Intermediate to advanced Erlang developers.
