Moving from Transactions to Streams to Gain Consistency

by Jan Stenberg Follow 6 Followers on  Mar 13, 2016

With many databases in a system they are rarely independent from each other, instead pieces of the same data are stored in many of them. Using transactions to keep everything in sync is a fragile solution. Working with a stream of changes in the order they are created is a much simpler and more resilient solution, Martin Kleppmann stated in his presentation at the recent QCon London conference.
