Event Details

In this talk, I'll discuss recent advances in scalable data stores, focusing on the fundamental trade-offs between availability, consistency, and latency required by replication. As services are increasingly distributed, both developers and systems designers will be required to face these trade-offs head-on: what is the appropriate choice for a given application, and how do we reason about the costs of a given solution?
