On NoSQL Databases and ACID

Dan Weinreb:

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)
