Default Re: Distributed Shared User DB Discussion

Couldnt resist

my little exp in this topic is that following situation works very well. Servers going down for some reason do happen and a transactionlog is then nice. distributed systems are one of the hardest part to design to reduce redundancy and transactions.

Another way to do it would be to give each server a list of all the other servers, and at regular interval, they would 'pull' all transactions since last communication from 'alive' servers. This would help deal with dead servers; when they come back up, each server would pull all the new transactions from it since last communication, so nothing would be lost.
