  • Participation in RICON 2014
  • Feb 2015
  • João Leitão, a NOVA LINCS researcher was invited to make a presentation at the industry conference RICON 2014 sponsored by Basho Inc. The presentation, in collaboration with a Basho senior engineer, covered the design of the new cluster metadata subsystem of RIAK, a commercial distributed datastore developed by Basho Inc. The new cluster metadata subsystem leverages on a gossip dissemination protocol, previously proposed by the researcher, named Plumtree. The talk covered several possible designs for such dissemination protocols, and showed how the problems addressed by academia closely fitted the practical issues found by RIAK’s engineers.
