Research Worth Knowing on CAP & ACID
The last couple of blog posts on NoSQL/SOA/large-scale and transactions got me thinking that maybe I hadn't mentioned another interesting research effort that also attempts to show how ACID transactions are possible in environments where some believe they aren't applicable. The work is being done under the banner of HA Transactions (HAT), and there's a more recent paper on the topic from VLDB 2014; they also talk about the use of different transaction models such as Sagas, which were part of the input to WS-TX and our REST transactions work. And of course there's always HPTS over the years!
