Scaling out Jazz Team Server: optimistic replication

I like to regularly follow¬†highscalability.com, which is all about the practices of extremely scalable web sites. Over the four years that we have been evolving the Jazz platform, we’ve investigated and learned a lot about the principles and standards of scalability, and even discovered a few good ideas of our own. In other words, we’re constantly looking for ways to better enable high scalability for tools that are built on the Jazz Team Server.

Recently, Todd Hoff wrote about a paper that surveys techniques for “optimistic replication.” This is near and dear to our goals for enabling clustering of Jazz Team Servers, as well as for more traditional replication scenarios like flowing source code changes across distributed repositories. ¬†

I’m adding this to the stack of caching, storage, and replication papers on my desk.
