Availability & Consistency
When we move to distributed architectures for scalability and/or fault-tolerance reasons we are also introducing additional complexities. Amazon CTO Werner Vogels dives into the different parameters that play in the tension between availability and consistency and presents a generalized model that we can use to reason about the trade-offs between different solutions.
Dr. Werner Vogels is VP & CTO at Amazon.com where he is responsible for driving the technology vision to continuously enhance the innovation on behalf of Amazon's customers at a global scale. Werner also blogs at All things Distribtued.
