Consistency Tradeoffs in Modern Distributed Database System Design

Daniel J. Abadi, Yale University
Abstract The CAP theorem’simpact on modern distribute databa sesystem design is more limited than is often perceived. Another tradeoff—between consistency and latency —has had a more direct influence on several well-known DDBSs. A proposed new formulation, PACELC, unifies this trade off with CAP.
