[Links of the day] 18/03/2016: RethinkDB FS and NSDI16 - Load balancer, reconfigurable fabric

  • Google Load Balancer : Google use a N+1 model for its load balancer vs the classical Active/passive model. Really nice low level network load balancing solution. 
  • XFabric : Reconfigurable In-Rack Network for Rack-Scale Computers
  • Regrid : a method of storing large files inside a RethinkDB database. Each file is stored as a series of binary chunks inside RethinkDB
  • NSDI16 : this year harvest of Usenix networking papers.
