Scaling Distributed Erlang

Location: CLT1.13 Date/Time: 25th March 2015, 14:00 - 15:00
Speaker(s): Natalia Chechina, University of Glasgow.

Brief Description:

In this talk I'll give a brief overview of Erlang functional programming language, and then discuss where the language is used, when it scales well, and when it does not. I'll also present Scalable Distributed Erlang (SD Erlang) -- an extension of distributed Erlang for reliable scalability -- its design, motivation, and the main two components, i.e. scalable groups and semi-explicit placement. To conclude I'll share results we've got to-date, and some future plans.
