Consensus protocols enable distributed systems to agree a common view of shared state. This common view allows a cluster to continue service while a majority of its members are available. Raft was designed to be understandable and based on simple proven protocol, however like most consensus protocols there is little guidance on how to implement it efficiently.
Aeron was designed to be an understandable messaging system, it was also designed to be fast, very fast, even in its Java implementation. If the design principles of Aeron were applied to Raft, could we create a high-performance consensus implementation? Come to this talk if you would like to find out how to build a high performance distributed event system in Java and see what happened when Aeron met Raft.
