Abstract

Database concepts like linearizability and serializability sound abstract, but they can have real-world consequences. In this talk, we’ll look at consistency in the real world and how flaws can impact your applications. We’ll take a tour of FaunaDB’s globally consistent transaction pipeline and compare it to the alternative approach taken by Google Spanner.
