Mnesia as a complete production database system

TALK LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE / ADVANCED

Mnesia is often underplayed as an in-memory cache and is seldom used alone in production.

The first part of the talk is to present a few case studies of using only Mnesia as the production database engine for large throughput services.

The second part of the talk is to present an open-sourced framework for Mnesia (Tivan) which is a collection of utilities and behaviours that enriches its role as a prime database engine.
