Get To It

In my very humble opinion, Rust is an outstanding language for building new databases, data stores, messaging systems and all of the other things. Books have already been written about this, so I will just say in conclusion:

  • We don't need to keep allocating all of the memory of all of the clouds to the JVM.
  • We ABSOLUTELY need to move away from all of the memory safety issues which have compromised countless systems.
  • Raft is a robust and powerful consensus protocol.
  • Huge companies have invested a lot of money in creating actor-based languages specifically for creating database systems (think FoundationDB), and we already have Actix (thanks Nikolay)!

There are plenty of awesome things to build! Let's do this!
