Non-Monotonic Snapshot Isolation

  title={Non-Monotonic Snapshot Isolation},
  author={Masoud Saeida Ardekani and Pierre Sutra and Nuno M. Preguiça and Marc Shapiro},
Many distributed applications require transactions. However, transactional protocols that require strong synchronization are costly in large scale environments. Two properties help with scalability of a transactional system: genuine partial replication (GPR), which leverages the intrinsic parallelism of a workload, and snapshot isolation (SI), which decreases the need for synchronization. We show that, under standard assumptions (data store accesses are not known in advance, and transactions… CONTINUE READING
