Objective

This talk focus on fitment of ZooKeeper for various use cases. Attendees will learn how effectively use ZooKeeper in the distributed clusters.

Description

Apache ZooKeeper is a popular system for coordinating clusters of servers. It is a component that enables the implementation of a number of important tasks for coordination, such as master election, group membership, locks. While it is hard to define precisely what ZooKeeper is good for, it is not hard to identify use cases in which it is not a good fit. For example, it shouldn’t be used for bulk data, file systems and traditional databases are much better in such cases. In this presentation, I discuss typical use cases of ZooKeeper and some other cases in which it is not a good option.
