Redwood Storage Engine documentation for 7.1 is missing

Here is the URL:

https://apple.github.io/foundationdb/redwood.html

Is there information somewhere else besides the talks from 2019?

Not yet, I’ll be updating that page soon, hopefully this week.

Here’s a status update: Redwood in FDB 7.1 (both release-7.1 and snowflake/release-7.1) is the first production-ready version and its on-disk format will be supported across upgrades going forward. It was still marked experimental out of caution since it hadn’t been used in production yet when the release was cut.

Since then, Snowflake has tested Redwood on many production clusters using the Testing Storage Server mode and as of now more than a dozen of those clusters are using Redwood as their primary storage engine.
