[Links of the day] 11/04/2016: Rust Distributed K/V store, Consensus in Cloud and interactive service tail latency

After a short hiatus here are the links of the day back :

  • Target-Driven Parallelism : Microsoft researcher look into using prediction and correction to reduce tail latency in interactive services.
  • Consensus in the Cloud : a very good technical report on systems using Paxos and the advantage/disadvantage associated with its use.
  • tikv : Distributed key value store written in Rust, Use Raft to deliver consistency and scalability coupled with a nice georeplication capability. Cherry on the top: distributed transaction are supported similar to google spanner.
