Strategies for Replication in Distributed Systems

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Any distributed storage system that scales out has some form of high availability (HA) built in to it. HA involves replication of data - either synchronously or in the background. This talk gives a brief introduction to both methods, explaining the pros and cons of each before diving in detail in to how gluster uses the the synchronous method in its Automatic File Replication translator for replicating data. We will understand the concepts involved in maintaining data consistency: locking of nodes, quorum checks, reconciliation of states, healing of data, preventing split-brains etc. and how they are actually implemented in code in gluster. Postulates like the CAP theorem are explained in practice from a real world system implementation.
