Distributed Coordination with Zookeeper
Splitting work across many machines is a vital part of scaling out for big data and big processing, but can cause big problems. Zookeeper provides a straightforward service for managing distributed locking, presence, and coordination, and is available via a PHP extension. In this talk we'll look at what Zookeeper is, when and why it's the right choice, and how to use it from PHP.
