Original Paper: Li, Jialin, et al. “Just Say NO to Paxos Overhead: Replacing Consensus with Network Ordering.” OSDI. 2016.
We present our evaluation of Network-Ordered Paxos (NOPaxos) by Li et. al. on a cloud platform. We describe the motivation for the NOPaxos protocol and discuss the extensions to the original software required when running on a cloud platform. We then compare the throughput/latency and scaling capacities of NOPaxos on a cloud platform to those of NOPaxos on dedicated hardware by reproducing Figures 5 and 8 from the original paper.
