Metaparticle Sync libraries.
About the library
Metaparticle is a standard library for cloud native development using containers and Kubernetes.
The Metaparticle sync is a library within Metaparticle for synchronization across multiple containers running on different machines.
Currently the library supports two synchronization primitives:
- Locks, for mutual exclusion of code between different containers on different machines.
- Leader Election, for reliably selecting a single leader from a group of candidates, and failing over if that leader fails.
Metaparticle sync is made up of two components:
- A re-usable container that can be deployed as a side-car to implement synchronization operators
- A collection of idiomatic client libraries that users can use in their applications to implement synchronization. Currently languages supported include:
Examples for locking and leader election for each of the supported languages can be found in their respective directories.
More technical details can be found in the overview.
