About the Event
Geo-replicated storage systems provide the backend for massive-scale
websites such as Google and Facebook. These storage systems seek to
provide an always-on experience where every operation completes
quickly because of a widely demonstrated link between page load times,
user engagement, and revenue. We term systems that provide an
always-on experience and can handle data at the required scale "ALPS"
systems because they provide four key properties: Availability, Low
latency, Partition tolerance, and Scalability.
Wyatt Lloyd is a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science at Princeton University.
