Paxos made live: an engineering perspective

  title={Paxos made live: an engineering perspective},
  author={Tushar Deepak Chandra and Robert Griesemer and Joshua Redstone},
We describe our experience in building a fault-tolerant data-base using the Paxos consensus algorithm. Despite the existing literature in the field, building such a database proved to be non-trivial. We describe selected algorithmic and engineering problems encountered, and the solutions we found for them. Our measurements indicate that we have built a competitive system.
