Project Voldemort is an open-source data persistance technology that is accurately described as a "big, distributed, persistent, fault-tolerant hash table". It's not a relational database. It doesn't do ACID. It doesn't care about your object or your documents. But it will store data and return it to you even when parts of it go away, and it will do it rather fast. This talk covers the basic theory of operation of Project Voldemort, and describe how Gilt Groupe is using Project Voldemort at the heart of their e-commerce system.
