To support replication, each spanserver implements a

early Spanner incarnation supported multiple Paxos state
machines per tablet, which allowed for more ﬂexible
replication conﬁgurations. The complexity of that de-

its metadata and log in its corresponding tablet. Our
Paxos implementation supports long-lived leaders with
time-based leader leases, whose length defaults to 10

Abstract Amulti-attribute group decisionmakingmethod composed of intuitionistic
fuzzy set and TOPSIS will be introduced into project material bidding procurement.
First, the opinions of experts about bidders and indicators’ attributes are expressed
by linguistic terms, and then turned into intuitionistic fuzzy numbers, which can be
used to obtain the weights of the indicators’ attributes and experts. Based on the
opinions of decision makers and IFWA operators, an aggregated intuitionistic fuzzy
decision matrix is formulated. In the end, the bidders are ranked by TOPSIS method....
