Title: “Filo: Consolidated Consensus as a Cloud Service”.
“In this talk I will introduce Filo, a system that is designed to provide Paxos-like consensus protocols as cloud services. Consensus is at the core of many production-grade distributed systems. Given the prevalence of these systems it is important to offer consensus as a cloud service. To match the multitenant requirements of the cloud, consensus as a service must provide performance guarantees and prevent aggressive tenants from monopolizing the service. Accomplishing this goal is not trivial without over provisioning and under-utilizing resources. Filo is designed to overcome these challenges. “
