Yahoo continues its trend of building open source versions of Google's infrastructure. I just discovered Yahoo Zookeeper, which looks very similar to Google's Chubby. Personally, I think this is great: more publicly available distributed systems infrastructure can only be a good thing. In particular, implementing Paxos correctly is very challenging, so using Yahoo's version can benefit everyone by testing it more thoroughly.
