Why Can't RDBM Cluster the Way NoSQL Does? Distributed Database Architecture 101

Fabulous answer on StackExchange to a question that is in the mind of the users of relational databases that have heard of NoSQL.

Distributed database systems are complex critters and come in a number of different flavours. If I dig deep in to the depths of my dimly remembered distributed systems papers I did at university (roughly 15 years ago) I’ll try to explain some of the key engineering problems to building a distributed database system.
