Harvest, Yield, and Scalable Tolerant Systems and Cluster-Based Scalable Network Services

Talk Abstract:

The CAP theorem is one of the defining blocks of how we talk about and build distributed systems. We use its tenets to understand how a system is going to behave in the case of failure and what kind of measures we can take to prevent or alleviate them. We'll learn how it came to be and why it's still so important today, especially when dealing with servers and services in the cloud.

This lecture will not assume any background in distributed systems research from the audience.

Food and drinks will be available at 6:30PM and the talk will start at 7PM.
