They talk about the early days of DynamoDB and how it changed their perspective on databases after experiencing the challenges of production systems. They draw parallels between the history of databases, the current state of vector databases, and what the future holds for this space. Spoiler alert: It's purpose built vector databases and serverless.
They conclude with a confession from Khawaja, a discussion on merits of single-table design, and whether Alex is ready to disown Khawaja after a revelation about Momento's architecture. We won't give away the details, but we promise it is juicy!
