7,523,110 - High availability designated winner data replication

Abstract:

Collisions are resolved in a database replication system. The system includes a plurality of nodes arranged in either a master-slave or network configuration. Each node includes a database, wherein changes made at the databases of each node are replicated to the databases at one or more of the other nodes. When a collision is detected during data replication between multiple nodes, the collision is resolved by a rule that gives precedence to certain nodes over other nodes.
