Engineering dependability and fault tolerance in a distributed system

 

This is a guest post by Paddy Byers, Co-founder and CTO at Ably, a realtime data delivery platform. You can view the original article on Ably's blog.

Users need to know that they can depend on the service that is provided to them. In practice, because from time to time individual elements will inevitably fail, this means you have to be able to continue in spite of those failures.

In this article, we discuss the concepts of dependability and fault tolerance in detail and explain how the Ably platform is designed with fault tolerant approaches to uphold its dependability guarantees.

As a basis for that discussion, first some definitions:

Dependability
The degree to which a product or service can be relied upon. Availability and Reliability are forms of dependability.

Availability
The degree to which a product or service is available for use when required. This often boils down to provisioning sufficient redundancy of resources with statistically independent failures.

Reliability
The degree to which the product or service conforms to its specification when in use. This means a system that is not merely available but is also engineered with extensive redundant measures to continue to work as its Continue reading

Benchmark (YCSB) numbers for Redis, MongoDB, Couchbase2, Yugabyte and BangDB

This is guest post by Sachin Sinha who is passionate about data, analytics and machine learning at scale. Author & founder of BangDB.

This article is to simply report the YCSB bench test results in detail for five NoSQL databases namely Redis, MongoDB, Couchbase, Yugabyte and BangDB and compare the result side by side. I have used latest versions for each NoSQL DB and have followed the recommendations to run all the databases in optimized conditions. I have also used the default six test scenarios as defined by the YCSB framework. I have restricted it to 10M records for each test. However, user can run the bench for as many numbers as they practically find suitable.

About YCSB

Following configurations were used for the evaluation purpose.

Each of these workload test runs in two steps, 1. Load and 2. Run. Load stage is to load the data and then run stage we run the test. I have run each test with Continue reading

The Read Aloud Cloud: An Interview With Forrest Brazeal On His New Book

 

It's Christmas time and you've been wracking your brain trying to find the perfect gift that will teach your loved ones about the cloud in a simple and entertaining way. What to do?

Fortunately for you, Santa has a new elf this year—Forrest Brazeal—who is part AWS Serverless Hero, part skilled cartoonist, and part cloud guru.

Yes, it's a cartoon book about the cloud! 

 

No, I didn't think it could be done either, but Forrest pulled it off with a twinkle in his eyes and little round belly that shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly.

One of the many five-star reviews:

The Read Aloud Cloud is a delightful book. It's 165 pages of hand-drawn cartoons, entertaining verse, and hard-won wisdom.

It truly is a load of fun to flip through. I read it to my kids (8 & 6), and they love it. I'll share it with my parents so they can finally understand what I do. I learned a ton about the history of computing and of course all the ways that we as humans stumble through making our computers do what we want.
