Followed by a healthy Q&A
In this talk, we'll discuss the theoretical and experimental consequences of network partitions, and how particular datastores preserve--or fail to preserve--their safety guarantees. We'll explore Zookeeper, Kafka, NuoDB, and Cassandra in depth, as well as ways you can help analyze and improve the reliability of your own systems.
Kyle Kingsbury is an engineer at Factual and the author of Riemann, an open-source event-driven monitoring system in Clojure. This year he's been testing the behavior of databases during network partitions and documenting his findings as part of the Jepsen initiative.
PARKING AND DIRECTIONS
We're in the Gateway West building, next to the Westfield Century City mall. It's the only building with big red "Westfield" signs on top.
We don't recommend parking in our building, as it is quite expensive. The best place for attendees to park is at the Westfield Century City Mall. Please note that they no longer offer free parking for the first 3 hours. Parking rates are as follows:
0 to 3 hours: $1.00 per hour
3 to 5 hours: $1.00 every 15 minutes
