A palestra do professor Fernando Pedone da Universidade de Lugano (USI), Suíça, terá como tema High Performance Transaction Processing in Sprint.
Esta palestra é co-organizada pelo ACM e pelo Grupo de Sistemas
Distribuídos do DI.
"In this talk I will present Sprint, a middleware infrastructure
designed at the University of Lugano (USI), Switzerland,
targeting high performance and high availability data management.
Sprint extends the functionality of a standalone in-memory
database to a cluster of commodity shared-nothing servers.
The execution model is very simple: Transaction
synchronization and commitment relies on a very efficient
Differently from several previous approaches, Sprint does not
require accurate failure detection to ensure strong consistency
(i.e., serializability), providing very fast reaction to
failures. Besides discussing Sprint's design and algorithms, I
will present some performance results."
