Reading back Rick Reed’s interview on his work at Whatsapp, they have built wandist, a dist-like transport over gen_tcp, that consists of a mesh of the nodes that need to talk to each other and so provides transparent routing layer above pg2 to create a single hop routing dispatch system.
Is there any chance that wandist could be open sourced now that FB has acquired Whatsapp ? Is there any similar open source project that try to address the same issue ?
I have no immediate need for such system but I am genuinely curious on how people solve this.
Thanks in advance.
