Below are my draft slides for next week’s talk at the 2nd Annual Oxbridge Women in Computer Science Conference in Oxford. The talk abstract is in a previous post. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated (note that the speaker notes are WIP)
I am incredibly excited to announce that Raft Refloated will be featured in The Morning Paper, by Adrian, as part of a series of 10 posts on distributed consensus. Last month, the morning paper also featured our work on the Databox. Will the raft paper sink or swin? Let’s wait and see.
Redirecting DNS for Ads and Profit is one of the collection of papers from the ICSI team, with the results from the Netalyzr, network diagnosis tool. This paper focuses on the 66K session traces where DNS error traffic has been monetization and calls out Paxfire, for their role in this area, the paper focuses on NXDOMAIN wildcarding and search engine […]
I’ve been accepted for a talk and a poster at the 2nd Annual Oxbridge Women in Computer Science Conference on 16th March 2015. My submitted abstract is here.
The January edition of the Operating System Review is now out, look out for “Raft Refloated: Do We Have Consensus?”. Also available without dead trees.
This course maybe of interest to readers, titled “Fog Networks and the Internet of Things”. This course teaches the fundamentals of Fog Networking, the network architecture that uses one or a collaborative multitude of end-user clients or near-user edge devices to carry out storage, communication, computation, and control in a network. It also teaches the […]
[this post is also available as a pdf] The end-to-end principle of the internet is a fallacy. Modern distributed system rely on the cloud rather than deal with the complexity of the edge network. We propose to explore how to provide primitives such as consistency, integrity, accessibility and authentication in the context of edge network […]
Distributed Protocols and Heterogeneous Trust – theory strong paper on adapting Byzantine-tolerant distributed protocols for hetrozenous trust relationships
Things are heating up at the edge network, Matrix.org is startup for a decentralised chat client with a clean JSON API, though it doesn’t seem to have much of a story for dealing with middleboxes.
The January edition of SIGOPS Operating Systems Review is out now and thus is the aptly named “Raft Refloated: Do We Have Consensus?”. This is my first journal paper and I’m really existed to see what the community makes of it. Title: Raft Refloated: Do We Have Consensus? Authors: Heidi Howard, Malte Schwarzkopf, Anil Madhavapeddy and […]
