Tradeoffs in Distributed Systems
Building distributed software systems is always a balancing act. NoSQL has been promoted as a significant alternative to traditional RDBMS, but the truth is it's just an acknowledgment that it can be useful to have additional dimensions of tradeoffs. This talk will examine the types of tradeoffs one can make in a NoSQL system and examine the Riak and Riak CS projects as concrete examples.
