Top 10 C++ Distributed System Projects

  • xgboost

    Scalable, Portable and Distributed Gradient Boosting (GBDT, GBRT or GBM) Library, for Python, R, Java, Scala, C++ and more. Runs on single machine, Hadoop, Spark, Dask, Flink and DataFlow

    Project mention: PSA: You don't need fancy stuff to do good work. | reddit.com/r/datascience | 2023-05-09

    Finally, when it comes to building models and making predictions, Python and R have a plethora of options available. Libraries like scikit-learn, statsmodels, and TensorFlowin Python, or caret, randomForest, and xgboostin R, provide powerful machine learning algorithms and statistical models that can be applied to a wide range of problems. What's more, these libraries are open-source and have extensive documentation and community support, making it easy to learn and apply new techniques without needing specialized training or expensive software licenses.

  • NebulaGraph Database

    A distributed, fast open-source graph database featuring horizontal scalability and high availability (by vesoft-inc)

    Project mention: What is a NoSQL Graph Database? | dev.to | 2023-01-09

    A NoSQL graph database is a type of non-relational, distributed database which employs a graph model. NoSQL stands for “Not only SQL” and refers to a new breed of databases that differ from traditional relational databases in their data model and performance. Graph databases are especially useful for data associated with relationships—everything from friendships on social netwo#rks to equipment supply chains or business processes. They can quickly traverse vast amounts of linked data points to discover insights and hidden connections between entities, making them ideal for network analysis– such as financial fraud detection, recommendation engines and many other use cases– all while performing at scale.

  • Sonar

  • pixie

    Instant Kubernetes-Native Application Observability

    Project mention: Lens Dashboard for monitoring multiple AKS/EKS/... clusters | reddit.com/r/kubernetes | 2023-05-25

    Plenty of paid monitoring solutions out there. Instana is pretty slick. NewRelic has a new open source tool, https://github.com/pixie-io/pixie

  • service-fabric

    Service Fabric is a distributed systems platform for packaging, deploying, and managing stateless and stateful distributed applications and containers at large scale.

    Project mention: Migrating Service Fabric apps to .NET 6 | dev.to | 2023-04-10

    The first on the list is the entry project .sfproj. They use a non-SDK-style project template with a bunch of .xml files for configuration but with no C# code. They require Fabric.MSBuild nuget to build and package Service Fabric apps. Unfortunately, the dotnet add package command won't update dependencies since they only support and non-SDK-style project template uses the package.config file to manage dependencies.

  • curve

    Curve is a sandbox project hosted by the CNCF Foundation. It's cloud-native, high-performance, and easy to operate. Curve is an open-source distributed storage system for block and shared file storage. (by opencurve)

    Project mention: Google Cloud Storage FUSE | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-05-02
  • lizardfs

    LizardFS is an Open Source Distributed File System licensed under GPLv3.

    Project mention: Distributed Network File System | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 2023-01-30
  • v6d

    vineyard (v6d): an in-memory immutable data manager. (Project under CNCF, TAG-Storage)

    Project mention: Has anyone here had experience using Vineyard? | reddit.com/r/HPC | 2023-01-25

    Brief Overview for any interested: Vineyard (v6d) is an in-memory immutable data manager that provides out-of-the-box high-level abstraction and zero-copy in-memory sharing for distributed data in big data tasks, such as graph analytics (e.g., GraphScope), numerical computing (e.g., Mars), and machine learning.

  • CodiumAI

    TestGPT | Generating meaningful tests for busy devs. Get non-trivial tests (and trivial, too!) suggested right inside your IDE, so you can code smart, create more value, and stay confident when you push.

  • nebula

    A distributed block-based data storage and compute engine (by varchar-io)

  • ScaleStore

    This is the source code for our (Tobias Ziegler, Carsten Binnig and Viktor Leis) published paper at SIGMOD’22: ScaleStore: A Fast and Cost-Efficient Storage Engine using DRAM, NVMe, and RDMA.

    Project mention: The end of a myth: Distributed transactions can scale | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-04-10

    The linked blog post at the top of this article - https://muratbuffalo.blogspot.com/2023/01/is-scalable-oltp-i... - provides graphics that give extremely useful context. And here's the repo for the paper that discusses: https://github.com/DataManagementLab/ScaleStore

    The idea that one of many writer-compute-nodes can literally reach into a memory buffer that is shared across machines, atomically flip some lock bits and propagate some cache-coherence messages, and use that to build a multi-writer distributed database without needing to partition (and where any writer-compute-node can handle any message, so you can just round-robin a firehose of messages at them)... and that there's a chance (though not yet implemented) that one could implement ACID on top of this? It's absolute madness, and wildly exciting.

  • C++ Middleware Writer

    The repo contains library code to support messaging and serialization. There are also two programs in the repo that are needed to use the CMW.
