asynchronous, non-blocking io

We use seastar for predictable reads and writes.

zero-cost serialization

smf and flatbuffers allow consistent low latency and high throughput.

kernel bypass

DPDK for TCP/Network bypass and DMA reads/writes gives us deterministic hardware reduction.

safety by default

We use Raft for data safety.

one binary

Written in C++ to extract every ounce of performance. No zookeeper and no JVM.
