Julia is a language designed for numerical computing and it does that job pretty well. However, the emphasis on numerical computing and data science tends to overshadow the language’s other use cases. In this talk we share our experiences using Julia to build a distributed data fabric using commodity hardware. A data fabric is a distributed storage system that abstracts away the physical infrastructure and makes data available to applications using well known protocols such as NFS or S3. Our talk focuses on how we use Julia to implement a data fabric with specific examples. We will discuss some of the shortcomings and how we circumvented them. Finally we close by a cost benefit analysis of developing in Julia and how it can be a critical advantage in bringing products to market.
