Towards Quantifiable Eventual Consistency

Francisco Maia, Miguel Matos, Fábio Coelho

Abstract

In the pursuit of highly available systems, storage systems began offering eventually consistent data models. These models are suitable for a number of applications but not applicable for all. In this paper we discuss a system that can offer a eventually consistent data model but can also, when needed, offer a strong consistent one.
