Why system design tutorials still talk about read-write separation in 2022? With NewSql databases like cockroachdb it's already obsolete
Read / Write separation is, in my opinion, only useful if you have a master-slave setup and a lot of reads. If not - forget about.
Why the tutorials write about? I think for historical reasons and the sections in the tutorial want to be filled. Ask the tutorial writer...
@palha Agree, but general feel like master-slave setup is already kinda outdated in an era of consensus-based databases. Both DDIA and System Design Interview by Alex Xu still focus heavily on it though.
