Summary
Justin Sheehy explains why a paradigm shift is necessary when dealing with large concurrent distributed systems and what are some of their requirements: no global state is shared, ACID no longer works but rather BASE and CAP, getting rid of RPC and using protocols over APIs instead, prepare for failure, degradation, understanding the harvest-yield balance, and using measurement.
