Data Reliability: This section deals…
This article is meant to be a summary post of the original Raft paper published as seen below. However, it will not include the sections on managing cluster membership and log compaction for now (Perhaps future edits to this article will include it).
Some figures below are also taken from my school’s lecture notes.
