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.
