Corfu is a consistency platform designed around the abstraction of a shared log. CorfuDB objects are in-memory, highly available data structures providing linearizable read/write operations and strictly serializable transactions. This talk will go over the benefits of Corfu and show how easy it is to build a distributed system using Corfu.
Michael Wei is a postdoctoral researcher at VMware. He leads the development of Corfu, a consistency platform designed around the abstraction of a shared log. His research interests are broad and range from distributed systems, to storage, computer architecture and most recently FPGAs.
