Earlier the book club of our company has studied excellent book:

Martin Kleppmann - Designing Data-Intensive Applications

This is the best book I have read about building complex scalable software systems. 💪

Chapter 5:

  • Intro. How to scale apps. Replicating and partitioning.
  • Three algos of replicating
  • Single-leader Replication
    • Leaders and Followers
    • Sync and async replication
    • Adding new Followers
    • Handling node outages
    • Technical implementations and all potential problems
  • Multi-Leader Replication
    • Use-cases when it is good
    • Handling write conflicts
    • Three topologies and potential problems
  • Leaderless Replication
    • Writing to the database when a node is down
    • Quorums and problems with them
