Every once in a while, somebody comes up with the “new” idea that eventually
consistent systems (or AP in CAP terminology) are useless. Of course, it’s
not really new at all; the SQL RDBMS neanderthals have been making this
claim-without-proof ever since NoSQL databases brought other models back
into the spotlight. In the usual formulation, banks must have immediate
consistency and would never rely on resolving conflicts after the fact …
except that they do and have for centuries.
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.
