Erudite Ruby Distributed Database I decided to write erudite because I was fascinated by Erlang’s EPMD communications daemon. I was thinking of a new open source project to work on, and it seemed like a good idea to build a ragged right edge database that would auto-shard, auto-migrate and auto-cluster. I also needed for it to listen for MySQL traffic and have a DSL for SQL which Ruby helps with.

I chose to write it in Ruby because I felt that Ruby’s dynamic nature would make it easier to work with.


-Auto sharding
-Auto data migration based on capacity and usage
-Partial file storage
-Auto-Discovery of new processes
