I've done a lot of work with DynamoDB over the years, so my mental model of how distributed databases work is very much based on DynamoDB. But not all distributed databases work like DynamoDB! Sometimes when I venture out into the world of other distributed databases, I'm surprised by how they handle things differently.

In this post, I want to look at a specific aspect of distributed databases: how they handle secondary indexes.
