[Links of the Day] 16/10/2018 : Cryptographic Library by Google, Rust CVS toolkit, Riselab Fast K/V store

  • Tink : cryptographic software library by Google offering a multi-language, cross-platform cryptographic solution. [Github]
  • xsv : A fast CSV command line toolkit written in Rust.
  • Anna: from the AMPlab now RiseLab which brought you the ramcloud project and tons of other goodies such as the raft consensus protocol, Spark or Mesos, comes Anna a fast KV store. This project is really interesting because the folks at RiseLab are really doing advance applied research. Their result are also impressive as well as business grounded. By example, the K/V store provides 8x the throughput of AWS ElastiCache’s and 355x the throughput of DynamoDB which is already impressive. But it is even more when you realised that the comparison is made for a fixed price point.
