TiKV is an open-source, distributed, and transactional key-value database. Unlike other traditional NoSQL systems, TiKV not only provides classical key-value APIs, but also transactional APIs with ACID compliance. Built in Rust and powered by Raft, TiKV was originally created to complement TiDB, a distributed HTAP database compatible with the MySQL protocol.
The design of TiKV ('Ti' stands for titanium) is inspired by some great distributed systems from Google, such as BigTable, Spanner, and Percolator, and some of the latest achievements in academia in recent years, such as the Raft consensus algorithm.
If you're interested in contributing to TiKV, or want to build it from source, see CONTRIBUTING.md.
TiKV is an incubating project of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). If you are an organization that wants to help shape the evolution of technologies that are container-packaged, dynamically-scheduled and microservices-oriented, consider joining the CNCF. For details about who's involved and how TiKV plays a role, read the CNCF announcement.
With the implementation of the Raft consensus algorithm in Rust and consensus state stored in RocksDB, TiKV guarantees data consistency. Placement Driver (PD), which is introduced to implement auto-sharding, enables automatic data migration. The transaction model is similar to Google's Percolator with some performance improvements. TiKV also provides snapshot isolation (SI), snapshot isolation with lock (SQL:
SELECT ... FOR UPDATE), and externally consistent reads and writes in distributed transactions.
TiKV has the following key features:
TiKV uses Raft and the Placement Driver to support Geo-Replication.
With PD and carefully designed Raft groups, TiKV excels in horizontal scalability and can easily scale to 100+ TBs of data.
Consistent distributed transactions
Similar to Google's Spanner, TiKV supports externally-consistent distributed transactions.
Similar to Hbase, TiKV implements a coprocessor framework to support distributed computing.
Cooperates with TiDB
Thanks to the internal optimization, TiKV and TiDB can work together to be a compelling database solution with high horizontal scalability, externally-consistent transactions, support for RDBMS, and NoSQL design patterns.
For instructions on deployment, configuration, and maintenance of TiKV, see our documentation on TiKV's wiki page or on our website. For more details on concepts and designs behind TiKV, see Deep Dive TiKV.
We are currently migrating our documentation from the TiKV's wiki page to the official website. We'd appreciate if you could check out the new look on the website and offer your feedback here. The Wiki page will be discontinued when the migration is finished. Stay tuned!

You can see the TiKV Roadmap.
When a node starts, the metadata of the Node, Store and Region are recorded into PD. The status of each Region and Store is reported to PD regularly.
TiKV was originally a component of TiDB. To run TiKV you must build and run it with PD, which is used to manage a TiKV cluster. You can use TiKV together with TiDB or separately on its own.
We provide multiple deployment methods, but it is recommended to use our Ansible deployment for production environment. The TiKV documentation is available on TiKV's wiki page.

For the production environment, use Ansible to deploy the cluster.
These are the clients for TiKV:
If you want to try the Go client, see Try Two Types of APIs.
