A typical Google computing cluster is made up of thousands of commodity PCs that execute massively parallel computations. This leads to an inherently unstable computing environment. Every computation must be designed in such a way that hardware failures do not compromise the correctness of the computation, but the computation must still complete quickly and not use too much resources. In this talk, we describe and discuss some of the abstractions used by Google engineers to achieve these goals.
