Paxos Made Live - An Engineering
Perspective (2006 Invited Talk)
Abstract: We describe our experience in building a fault-tolerant
data-base using the Paxos consensus algorithm. Despite the existing literature in the
field, building such a database proved to be non-trivial. We describe selected
algorithmic and engineering problems encountered, and the solutions we found for them.
Our measurements indicate that we have built a competitive system.
