Thespis: Actor-Based Causal Consistency

Abstract

Thespis is a middleware that innovatively leverages the Actor model to implement causal consistency over an industry-standard database, whilst abstracting complexities for application developers behind a REST open-protocol interface. Our evaluation considers correctness, performance and scalability aspects. We also run empirical experiments using YCSB to show the efficacy of the approach for a variety of workloads.
