Werner Vogels, CTO at Amazon.com, posted a paper on Amazon’s internal called “Dynamo” about two year ago that was selected to be presented at the 21st ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles. Dynamo is Amazon’s internal cluster software platform. It is really their operating system since they add “hot swappable” commodity hardware to the system in plug-and-play fashion as needed.
I know I’m late to finding this particular paper since it was first published about two years ago. Better late than never!
