Towards highly available and scalable high performance clusters

Azzedine Boukerche, Raed A. Al-Shaikh, Mirela Sechi Moretti Annoni Notare
2007 Journal of computer and system sciences (Print)  
However, one of the challenges in a clustered environment is to keep system failure to the minimum and to achieve the highest possible level of system availability.  ...  In particular, we explore the hardware and the management layers of the HA-HPC cluster design, as well as a more focused study on the parallel-applications layer (i.e. FT-MPI implementations).  ...  Finally, we put together a small-scale fault tolerant HPC cluster using HA-OSCAR and different MPI implementations, to study the behavior of such a system.  ...

Replication-Based Highly Available Metadata Management for Cluster File Systems

Zhuan Chen, Jin Xiong, Dan Meng
2010 2010 IEEE International Conference on Cluster Computing  
To guarantee both availability and efficiency, we propose a mechanism for building highly available metadata servers based on replication, which integrates Paxos algorithm effectively into metadata service  ...  In cluster file systems, the metadata management is critical to the whole system. Past researches mainly focus on journaling which alone is not enough to provide high-available metadata service.  ...  Within the file system, a set of highly available metadata servers is a critical component for building robust cluster file system.  ...

Manageability, availability, and performance in porcupine: a highly scalable, cluster-based mail service

Yasushi Saito, Brian N. Bershad, Henry M. Levy
2000 ACM Transactions on Computer Systems  
The goal of Porcupine is to provide a highly available and scalable electronic mail service using a large cluster of commodity PCs.  ...  Key to the system's manageability, availability, and performance is that sessions, data, and underlying services are distributed homogeneously and dynamically across nodes in a cluster.  ...  Introduction The growth of the Internet has led to the need for highly scalable and highly available services. This paper describes the Porcupine scalable electronic mail service.  ...

A Distributed and Cooperative NameNode Cluster for a Highly-Available Hadoop Distributed File System

Yonghwan KIM, Tadashi ARARAGI, Junya NAKAMURA, Toshimitsu MASUZAWA
2015 IEICE transactions on information and systems  
It may also lose the advantage of using commodity hardware since the two NameNodes have to share a highly reliable sophisticated storage.  ...  However, HDFS requires a single master node, called a NameNode, to manage the entire namespace (or all the i-nodes) of a file system.  ...  ZooKeeper ZooKeeper [8] is a small cluster that provides highly reliable distributed coordination. All servers in Zookeeper are synchronized, and one of them behaves as a leader (Fig. 2 ).  ...

Highly Available Queue-oriented Speculative Transaction Processing [article]

Thamir M. Qadah, Mohammad Sadoghi
2021 arXiv   pre-print
This paper proposes a generic framework to model the replication process in deterministic transaction processing systems and use it to study three cases.  ...  However, the problem of ensuring high availability in deterministic distributed transaction processing systems has received less attention from the research community, and this aspect has not been analyzed  ...  The Zookeeper cluster is a highly available system, and it does not constitute a single point of failure because it uses its internal replication and consensus protocols to ensure correct fail-over.  ...
