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.
