The “NoSQL” systems are ACID, as long as you accept that a transaction can only perform one operation, in the sense that the only thing that gets in the way of being ACID is when there are network partitions and the system is called upon to perform operations while the partition is still there.
That’s why they are said to be ☞ BASE (basically available, soft state, eventually consistent)
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
