  • Current commercial databases allow application programmers to trade off consistency for performance. [...] Key Method It also specifies a variety of guarantees for predicate-based operations in an implementation-independent manner. Two new levels are defined that provide useful consistency guarantees to application writers; one is the weakest level that ensures consistent reads, while the other captures some useful consistency properties provided by pessimistic implementations. We use a graph-based approach to…Expand Abstract
