David Murray will present chain replication: a high-throughput alternative to quorum-based replication protocols like PAXOS and RAFT.


Chain replication is a new approach to coordinating clusters of fail-stop storage servers. The approach is intended for supporting large-scale storage services that exhibit high throughput and availability without sacrificing strong consistency guarantees. Besides outlining the chain replication protocols themselves, simulation experiments explore the performance characteristics of a prototype implementation. Throughput, availability, and several objectplacement strategies (including schemes based on distributed hash table routing) are discussed.
