A Commutative Replicated Data Type (CRDT) is one where all concurrent operations commute. The replicas of a CRDT converge automatically, without complex concurrency control. This paper describes Treedoc, a novel CRDT design for cooperative text editing. An essential property is that the identifiers of Treedoc atoms are selected from a dense space. We(More)
Replicas of a commutative replicated data type (CRDT) eventually converge without any complex concurrency control. We validate the design of a non-trivial CRDT, a replicated sequence, with performance measurements in the context of Wikipedia. Furthermore, we discuss how to eliminate a remaining scalability bottleneck: Whereas garbage collection previously(More)
Stream processing is a new computing paradigm that enables continuous and fast analysis of massive volumes of streaming data. Debugging streaming applications is not trivial, since they are typically distributed across multiple nodes and handle large amounts of data. Traditional debugging techniques like breakpoints often rely on a stop-the-world approach,(More)
As the classic transactional abstraction is sometimes considered too restrictive in leveraging parallelism, a lot of work has been devoted to devising relaxed transactional models with the goal of improving concurrency. Nevertheless, the quest for improving concurrency has somehow led to neglect one of the most appealing aspects of transactions: software(More)
The recent proliferation of multi-core processors has moved concurrent programming into mainstream by forcing increasingly more programmers to write parallel code. Using traditional concurrency techniques, such as locking, is notoriously difficult and has been considered the domain of a few experts for a long time. This discrepancy between the established(More)
