Can we have a fast and reliable system at the same time based on Redis? This
blog post is an exploration in this area. I’ll try to describe a proposal
for a simple algorithm to use N Redis instances for distributed and reliable
locks, in the hope that the community may help me analyze and comment the
algorithm to see if this is a valid candidate.
As much as I like Redis, use this post as an exercise on how to reason about distributed locks and stick with ZooKeeper for the implementation.
