As we have seen so far, the Paxos protocol is well-specified. However, there are some small details and optimizations that the original paper could not cover. Some of these topics were covered in subsequent papersT. D. Chandra, R. Griesemer, and J. Redstone, “Paxos Made Live: An Engineering Perspective,” Proceedings of the Twenty-sixth Annual ACM Symposium on Principles of Distributed Computing, 2007.. This lesson will cover some of these topics as briefly as possible.
