In August, we wrote about our concerted stability effort. Today, we've more than achieved our CockroachDB stability goal of running a 100-node cluster.
If we abandoned our earthly constraints, how could we improve consensus algorithms? Specifically, what would it take to make them faster?
Does CockroachDB really survive? When data is written, will a failure really not end up in data loss? Let's explore how CockroachDB checks replication.
In CockroachDB, we use the Raft consensus algorithm to ensure that your data remains consistent even when machines fail.
