Apache ZooKeeper has become a de facto standard for distributed
coordination. Its design has proven to be flexible enough that it can
be applied to a variety of needs of distributed applications. It has
been used for Leader Election, Service Discovery, Status Monitoring,
Dynamic configuration and others. It has simplified lives of services
engineering and is easily applied to various projects. It has multi
tenancy features allowing ZooKeeper to run as a shared service. Its
performance and reliability has allowed it to be a critical component
in distributed systems.

ZooKeeper has been in production at companies like
Yahoo!, Facebook, LinkedIn and many others. This talk will include a
review of the breadth of ZooKeeper features and use cases in low
latency systems like ad platforms, high latency WAN environment and
high throughput deployments. The talk will also include the future
roadmap for ZooKeeper.
