I recently attended Meetup hosted by Google Warsaw Cloud, where Emilia Sokół, a software engineer, discussed Chubby, a lock service at Google scale. She shared her team's experience with providing a reliable locking service for a distributed system.
Emilia also talked about the mechanisms for scaling, such as caching and proxies, and how Paxos implementation with lease timers ensures liveness.
