Automatic Membership Service For Large-Scale Dependable Storage Systems
Byzantine-fault-tolerant replication increases the reliability and availability of Internet services that store significant state and protect it in spite of attacks or software errors. Existing Byzantine-fault-tolerant storage systems either imagine a static set of replicas, or have restrictions in how they handle reconfigurations and it represented in terms of the consistency and levels they provide the scalability of the solutions. This paper can be difficult in large-scale, long-lived systems where system connection is likely to change during the system existence. Here present a service that follows system membership and from time to time reports other system nodes of membership vary.
