In this post: (1) covered an availability limitation of the Raft protocol (2) demonstrated that modern implementations of Raft are subject to it (3) described an existing simpler approach to the problem of consensus (4) showed that its toy 500-lines implementation has performance similar to Etcd but doesn't suffer from Raft's performance penalty
