Consensus algorithm

From TerGoPedia

A consensus algorithm is a process done online on several computers to confirm data validity in a network of processes or systems. Consensus algorithms were created to achieve complete trust for processes involving multiple nodes/users.

Applications of the consensus algorithm include:

  • deciding whether to undertake a database transaction
  • appointing a node/user as a leader for a given task
  • synchronization and maintaining version unity
