Chain replication in theory and in practice

Scott Lystig Fritchie
2010 Proceedings of the 9th ACM SIGPLAN workshop on Erlang - Erlang '10  
In theory, the chain replication algorithm is quite simple and should be straightforward to implement correctly.  ...  In practice, however, there were many implementation details that had effects both profound and subtle.  ...  .: to the Shibuya development team for code and documentation reviews and to the Shibuya field engineer team for their invaluable customer support.  ...

Middleware-based Database Replication: The Gaps between Theory and Practice [article]

Emmanuel Cecchet, George Candea, Anastasia Ailamaki
2008 arXiv   pre-print
This way, we hope to both motivate and help researchers in making the theory and practice of middleware-based database replication more relevant to each other.  ...  This has created over time a gap between academic research and industrial practice. This paper aims to characterize the gap along three axes: performance, availability, and administration.  ...  ACKNOWLDEGEMENTS We are grateful to our academic and industrial partners for their feedback and contributions and especially to Gustavo Alonso, Robert Hodges, Bettina Kemme, and Dheeraj Pandey for their  ...

Fault tolerant adaptive parallel and distributed simulation through functional replication

Gabriele D'Angelo, Stefano Ferretti, Moreno Marzolla
2019 Simulation modelling practice and theory  
To cope with this issue, FT-GAIA transparently replicates simulation entities and distributes them on multiple execution nodes.  ...  Moreover, FT-GAIA offers some protection against Byzantine failures, since interaction messages among the simulated entities are replicated as well, so that the receiving entity can identify and discard  ...  Discussion We can use the results above to provide some guidelines on how the replication level M can be chosen in practice.  ...

Frustration: Theory and practice

Peter R. Killeen
1994 Psychonomic Bulletin & Review  
But the whole of Amsel's work transcends these particulars and exemplifies, as do few other curriculum vitae, the ideal of systematic scientific inquiry that is praised more often than practiced.  ...  Amsel alludes to Grand Unified Theories that may eventually incorporate his analyses with others, and provides a substantial amount of this unification himself, relating frustration theory to theories  ...
