Towards a Solution to the Red Wedding Problem

Edge computing promises lower latency interactions for clients operating at the edge by shifting computation away from Data Centers to Points of Presence which are more abundant and located geographically closer to end users. However, most commercially available infrastructure for edge computing focuses on applications without shared state. In this paper, we present the Red Wedding Problem, a real-world scenario motivating the need for stateful computations at the edge. We sketch the design and implementation of a prototype database for operation at the edge that addresses the issues presented in the Red Wedding Problem and present issues around implementing our solution on commercial edge infrastructure due to limitations in these offerings
