  • Moving from single node to scalable, fault tolerant distributed mode is non trivial and slow, even though core functionality remains the same.
  • Limit the number of partitions on a single node,
  • You must define correct behavior of your system. How do you partition? What is the replication factor? Are replicas the same or are there different roles such as master/slave replicas? How should the system behave when nodes fail, new nodes are added etc. This differs from system to system.2. Once you have defined how the system must behave, you have to implement that behavior in code, maybe on top of ZK or otherwise. That implementation is non-trivial, hard to debug, hard to test. Worse, in response to requirements, if the behavior of the system were to change even slightly, the entire process has to repeat.MOVING FROM ONE SHARD PER NODE to MULTIPLE SHARD PER NODEInstead, wouldn't it be nice if all you had to do was step 1 i.e. simply define the correct behavior of your distributed system and step 2 was somehow taken care of?
  • Core helix concepts What makes it generic
  • In this slide, we will look at the problem from a different perspective and possibly re-define the cluster management problem.So re-cap to solve dds we need to define number of partitions and replicas, and for each replicas we need to different roles like master/slave etcOne of the well proven way to express such behavior is use a state machine
  • Dynamically change number of replicasAdd new resources, add nodesChange behavior easilyChange what runs whereelasticity
  • Design choicesCommunicationZK optimizationsMultiple deployment optionsNo SPOF
  • Mention configuration etc
  • Auto rebalance: Applicable to message consumer group, searchAutoDistributed data store
  • Allows one to come up with common toolsThink of maven plugins
  • Used in production and manage the core infrastructure components in the companyOperation is easy and easy for dev ops to operate multiple systems
  • S4 Apps and processing tasks, each have different state modelMultitenancy multiple resources
  • Define statesHow many you want in each stateState modelHelix provides MasterSlaveOnlineOfflineLeaderStandbyTwo master systemAutomatic replica creation
  • Provides the right combination of abstraction and flexibilityCode is stable and deployed in productionIntegration between multiple systems co-locatingGood thing helps think more about your design putting in right level of abstraction and modularity
