What and Who
Title:Leveraging Sharding in the Design of Scalable Replication Protocols
Speaker:Robbert van Renesse
coming from:Cornell University
Speakers Bio:Robbert van Renesse obtained his Ph.D. in 1989 at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, and subsequently worked on the Plan 9 operating system at AT&T Bell Labs. Since 1991 he and his students have been working at Cornell University on the theory and practice of scalable distributed systems. Van Renesse co-founded two companies in distributed systems technology.

Most if not all datacenter services use sharding and replication for scalability and reliability. Shards are more-or-less independent of one another and individually replicated. We challenge this design philosophy and present a replication protocol where the shards interact with one another: A protocol running within shards ensures linearizable consistency, while the shards interact in order to improve availability. We analyze its availability properties and evaluate a working implementation.
