Subject Jeff Dean on fast response in an unreliable world
Date Tue, 11 Sep 2012 18:37:02 GMT
Headed into Thursday's meetup, this paper by Jeff Dean provides a very good
description of strategies for getting fast response times with variable
quality infrastructure.

The key point here is that it is very important to have asynchronous
queries with a cancel.  Above that level, there needs to be a simple
strategy for pushing second versions of queries out to the workers and
canceling defunct or redundant queries.
