etcd: locking and discovery for lots of servers

A session at Fossetcon 2014

Friday 12th September, 2014

1:40pm to 2:20pm (EST)

The future of how to run your servers and deploy software on your servers is changing. Dedicated VMs and configuration management tools are being replaced by
containerization and new service management technologies like systemd. Come and learn how etcd is a tool in providing performant, reliable, large distributed systems. etcd provides easy to use distributed locking and service discovery. It has an accessible HTTP+JSON API that exposes a powerful set of primitives inspired by projects like Google's Chubby and Apache Zookeeper. This talk will cover the underlying consensus algorithm, the architecture of the code, introduce the API and survey the libraries and tools that have been built by the etcd community. The project is open source and available on github: github.com/coreos/etcd"
