Apache Zookeeper, Distributed Systems, Open Source and more with Camille Fournier

Episode #13 of the podcast is a talk with Camille Fournier Available also on iTunes

Apache Zookeeper is a centralized service for maintaining configuration information, naming, providing distributed synchronization, and providing group services. All of these kinds of services are used in some form or another by distributed applications. Each time they are implemented there is a lot of work that goes into fixing the bugs and race conditions that are inevitable. Because of the difficulty of implementing these kinds of services, applications initially usually skimp on them ,which make them brittle in the presence of change and difficult to manage.  Even when done correctly, different implementations of these services lead to management complexity when the applications are deployed.

Camille talked about discovery services, distributed locking as well as some tips to developing against and operating Zookeeper in production including how to build a Global, Highly Available Service Discovery Infrastructure with ZooKeeper which she also wrote about on her blog http://whilefalse.blogspot.com/2012/12/building-global-highly-available.html.

Camille gave some great insights about how to apply Open Source community practices to an organization’s SDLC to foster a better culture for better products and services where all developers need to own more parts of their software  (like it is in Open Source projects). #devops #qaops #userops
