  • Can We Trust the Cloud Not to Fail?

    I will start with the theory behind failure detection, and then review a couple of real-world examples of how the mechanism works in a real cloud - on Azure. Even though this article includes real-world applications of failure detection within Azure, the same notions could also apply to GCP, AWS, or any other distributed system.

  • Back to the Future with Relational NoSQL

    This article outlines some of the consistency issues NoSQL databases have with distributed transactions, showing how FaunaDB has solved the problems using the Calvin protocol and a virtual clock.

  • CAP Twelve Years Later: How the "Rules" Have Changed
