Luca Garulli

Luca Garulli

Luca is the original author of the OrientDB product and the main committer. In order to handle indexes in the most efficient way, Luca created the new MVRB-Tree algorithm (it was originally referred to as the RB+Tree but another different algorithm already exists with that name) as mix of Red-Black Tree and B+Tree. MVRB stands for Multi Value Red Black because it stores multiple values in each tree node instead of just one, as the RB-Tree does. MVRB-Tree consumes less than half the memory of the RB-Tree implementation, while maintaining the original speed and balancing the tree on insertion/update. Furthermore, the MVRB-Tree allows fast retrieval and storage of nodes in persistent mode. He is a member of the Sun Microsystems JDO 1.0 Expert Group (JSR#12) and JDO 2.0 Expert Group (JSR#243) that wrote the JDO standard.
