Very simple parallel database based on leveldb and zeromq.

Project Description

Guidb is a minimal layer of code on top of Leveldb, using Google’s protocol buffers and ZeroMQ, to build a key-value distributed datastore.

The goal of this project is more academic than practical, to prove that key-value datastores can be distributed and scaled-up very easily with minimal work.

I honestly doubt that it will grow to a enterprise-class database because then it will be as complex as Riak or Cassandra, and I don’t have the time, the knowledge nor the talent to do that.

If you have comments, use the comment form in my webpage for any post. And ignore the fact that it’s in Spanish.

There is no public development repository at this time because I think that is not necessary for roughy 200 lines of code, but I could set it up upon request.

Look at the tests ( for fully working examples. It’s as easy as it gets.
