Recent Trends in Database Replication
Prof. Alan Fekete, University of Sydney
Date & Time: January 6, 2006 15:30
Venue: SIC 301, 'C' Block, 03rd Floor, KReSIT
Data can be replicated for reasons of performance, availability, or reliability. When transactions can modify replicated data, some mechanisms are needed to prevent (or at least to limit the impact of) inconsistencies between the replicas. This lecture will survey some of the most important work in the past decade on this topic. One main thread of work has assumed that updates are propagated lazily (outside transaction boundaries), and has proposed conditions on data placement, transaction semantics, etc in order to ensure that inconsistencies are not visible to applications. Another recent group of papers have used eager propagation of updates, in a context where individual databases provide snapshot isolation rather than traditional serializability.
