Transaction processing is fundamental for many modern applications. These applications require the backend transaction processing engines to be available at all times as well as provide a massive horizontal scale for intensive transaction requests.
Concurrency Control and Recovery features recent progress in research in online transaction processing. The book also showcases the authors’ research on a highly scalable OLTP system. Its contents include the designs of an efficient multiple version storage engine, a scalable range optimistic concurrency control, high-performance Paxos-based log replication, global snapshot isolation, and fast follower recovery.
This book is written for professionals, researchers, and graduate students specialising in database systems and its related fields.
