The Raft Consensus Algorithm
Recorded at:

by Diego Ongaro on Mar 02, 2016 |

Diego Ongaro introduces Raft, a consensus algorithm for managing a replicated log by separating the key elements of consensus and reducing the number of states that must be considered.


Diego Ongaro completed his PhD with Professor John Ousterhout at Stanford University in 2014. During his PhD, he worked on RAMCloud (a key-value store with 5-10 microsecond latency), the Raft consensus algorithm, and LogCabin (a coordination service built with Raft). He recently joined the Compute Systems team at Salesforce.
