pv0 to Hero: A Brief History of the Consensus Protocol

Speaker: Pavi Vetriselvan
Consensus is hard. Have you and your friends ever agreed on a place to eat? Me either. In distributed systems, a consensus algorithm determines how multiple nodes agree on a consistent state in spite of failures. In this talk, I'll provide an overview of the MongoDB consensus algorithm used in replica sets. This algorithm is based on Raft.
