Palestra Prof. Fernando Pedone
O Prof. Pedone da universidade de Lugano, Suiça que está nos visitando vai fazer uma palestra (talk de uma hora + tempo para perguntas) na sala da PG da Automação as 16 horas nesta quinta-feira 27/11/14. O titulo e o resumo da apresentacao estão abaixo.
Title: Scalable State-Machine Replication
State-machine replication (SMR) is a well-known fault-tolerance technique. SMR consists of sequencing client requests and executing them against replicas in the same order; thanks to deterministic execution, every replica reaches the same state after executing the same sequence of requests. Despite its simple execution model, SMR does not scale performance: since every replica added to the system needs to execute all requests, throughput does not improve with the number of replicas.
In this talk, I will present Scalable SMR (S-SMR), a technique that extends state-machine replication to scale (a) with the number of replicas (scale out) and (b) with the number of processors in a replica (scale up). I will also describe Eyrie, a library in Java that implements S-SMR, and Volery, an application that implements Zookeeper’s API. We assessed the performance of Volery and compared the results to Zookeeper.
Fernando Pedone is a full professor in the Faculty of Informatics at the University of Lugano (USI), Switzerland. He received the Ph.D. degree from Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in 1999. Before joining USI, he was a researcher at the Hewlett-Packard Laboratories in Palo Alto (HP Labs), USA, and a senior researcher at EPFL. His research interests include the theory and practice of distributed systems and distributed data management systems. Fernando Pedone has authored more than 100 scientific papers and 6 patents. He is co-editor of the book “Replication: theory and practice”, Springer 2010.
