n geo-replicated distributed data stores, the need to ensure responsiveness
in the face of network partitions and processor failures results in
implementations that provide only weak (so-called eventually consistent)
guarantees on when data updated by one process becomes visible to another.
Applications must be carefully constructed to be aware of unwanted
inconsistencies permitted by such implementations (e.g., having negative
balances in a bank account, or having an item appear in a shopping cart
after it has been removed), but must balance correctness concerns with
performance and scalability needs. Because understanding these tradeoffs
requires subtle reasoning and detailed knowledge about the underlying data
store, implementing robust distributed applications in such environments is
often an error-prone and expensive task.
