[Links of the Day] 14/05/2018 : Concurrency and Paxos resources, PostgreSQL + docker streaming replication

  • PostDock : This is an interesting project, It aims are delivering a Postgres streaming replication cluster for any docker environment. Sprinkle this with Kubernetes config and you would end up with an RDS equivalent. Even if I still think that on a long run CockroachDB / spanner solution are probably better for cloud deployment.
  • awesome-consensus : Awesome list for Paxos and friends
  • Seven Concurrency Models in Seven Weeks : more concurrency stuff. Excellent (free) book looking at all the important stuff: Threads & locks, functional programming, separating identity & state, actors, sequential processes, data parallelism, and the lambda architecture.
