MountainWest RubyConf 2009: Vertebra
Vertebra facilitates fault-tolerant operations among autonomous agents. It addresses the challenges posed by writing distributed, performant applications at cloud scale. Vertebra is implemented using both Ruby and Erlang. This talk will give an overview of Vertebra, and then delve into the challenges that have been faced on the Ruby side of the project, and the solutions we’ve implemented to solve them.
