Portal collecting implementations of and information about raft. Posting cuz I didn’t find it in search, and it’s a good resource.
One thing I’m still not clear on: is Raft a specialization of Paxos or not? If not, how does Raft differ?
It solves the same problem, in a way that is theoretically not as efficient, but is easier to understand. (The paper – which again, I highly recommend – has some evidence for this last claim.)
Given the proliferation of implementations, it also gives some weight to the idea that “easier to understand” means “easier to implement”.
