Loose Concurrency & CAP theorem today

Host: Sadek Drobi

A dozen years ago the first successful massive scale distributed systems started to appear, changing our perception about how best to build highly reliable and always-available web services. The CAP Theorem played a significant role in explaining the tradeoffs necessary for such systems, and it's helped us learn a lot in the last 12 years. In this track you'll hear from practitioners continuing to advance the state of the art in distributed systems at massive scale and how they provide extremely reliable, available, and concurrent systems while dealing with issues such as unpredictable latency, eventual consistency, capturing causality, and inevitable partial failure.
