What are the types of Replication?

 Posted by Niladri.Biswas on 12/12/2012 | Category: Others Interview questions | Views: 2432 | Points: 40

Replication comes in two forms:

- Master-slave replication makes one node the authoritative copy that handles writes while slaves synchronize with the master and may handle reads.

- Peer-to-peer replication allows writes to any node; the nodes coordinate to synchronize their copies of the data.

Master-slave replication reduces the chance of update conflicts but peer-to-peer replication avoids loading all writes onto a single point of failure.
