  • The cost of reconciling consistency and state management with high availability is highly magnified by the unprecedented scale and robustness requirements of today's Internet applications. We propose two strategies for improving overall availability using simple mechanisms that scale over large applications whose output behavior tolerates graceful degradation. We characterize this degradation in terms of harvest and yield, and map it directly onto engineering mechanisms that enhance… CONTINUE READING
