Data is the new natural resource of this century. As data volumes grow and applications aimed at monetizing the data continue to evolve, data processing platforms are expected to meet new scale, performance, reliability and data retention requirements. At the same time, storage hardware continues to improve in performance and price-performance. In this paper, we present TOKVS - Trillion Operation Key-Value Store, a NoSQL storage engine that redefines the storage software stack to meet the requirements of next-generation applications on next-generation hardware.
