Christopher Meiklejohn talks through a history of chain replication, starting with the original work from 2004 by van Renesse and Schneider. He looks at the various systems built using chain replication: Hibari, FAWN-KV, and CRAQ and explores safer designs of chain replication, such as the elastic replication work in 2013, and finally looks at new and unique designs of chain replication.
Christopher Meiklejohn is a Senior Software Engineer with Machine Zone, Inc. working on distributed systems. In his spare time, Christopher develops a programming language for distributed computation, called Lasp.
