Awesome, rock-solid, super-fast persistence engine for event-sourced applications was launched by Greg Young and the team from Event Store


London, UK, - September 17, 2012 – We're proud to announce that Greg Young, supported by a team from ELEKS, has launched Event Store, a fast distributed database tuned for storing events (event sourcing support).

This one of the key projects we've been working on last couple of months that has been presented to public. The project is being developed under the direction of Greg Young.

The project code for a single node version is published under an open source license and multi-node versions are available; visit for more details.

While developing Event Store, Greg Young and the ELEKS team faced many challenges. Overcoming these challenges has resulted in the many innovative solutions available in the product: great performance, built in projections framework, the opportunity to run on Windows (.NET) and on Linux (Mono).
