An ultimate goal for modern Internet services is the development of scalable, high-performance, highly-available and fault-tolerant systems. Replication is an important approach to achieve this goal. However, replication introduces the issue of consistency among replicas, which is further complicated by network partitions. Generally, higher consistency levels result in lower system availability in the presence of network partitions. Thus, there is a fundamental tradeoff between consistency and… CONTINUE READING
