Partial Replication: Achieving Scalability in Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Databases

  title={Partial Replication: Achieving Scalability in Redundant Arrays of Inexpensive Databases},
  author={Emmanuel Cecchet and Julie Marguerite and Willy Zwaenepoel},
Clusters of workstations become more and more popular to power data server applications such as large scale Web sites or e-Commerce applications. There has been much research on scaling the front tiers (web servers and application servers) using clusters, but databases usually remain on large dedicated SMP machines. In this paper, we focus on the database tier using clusters of commodity hardware. Our approach consists of studying different replication strategies to achieve various degree of… CONTINUE READING
