Chain Replication for Supporting High Throughput and Availability
Robbert van Renesse and Fred B. Schneider, Cornell University
Chain replication is a new approach to coordinating clusters of fail-stop storage
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 object-placement strategies
(including schemes based on distributed hash table routing) are discussed.
