This session is on consensus algorithms: 

how to best achieve consensus among a set of distributed and unreliable nodes.

- Paxos: family of protocols for reaching consensus among unreliable nodes. Paper 'Paxos made simple' (2001).  

- RAFT (1 contrib): protocol explained, scenarios through MSCs, execution of source code: Paper 'In Search of an Understandable Consensus Algorithm'


- Zab (1 contrib): atomic broadcast layer and protocol used in Zookeeper. Paper 'Zab: High-performance broadcast for primary-backup systems'

- Viewstamped Replication (1 contrib): replication technique handling node crash failures: Paper 'VR Revisited'

We will also go through latest relevant news on HPC.

- 5 euros to attend 

- free access to contributors

- 10 seats available - first arrived first served. 

How can I contribute? 

    - by writing some doc (MD or HTML5) 

    - by providing Linux install scripts (Bash, Python, ..) 

    - by providing test source code (benchmarks, etc..) 

Contribution needed on 'Paxos'.
