The Accord Consensus Protocol, how to do ACID transactions at scale


Room: Linux

Scheduled at : Thursday 11:15 12:15


The Accord Consensus Protocol, providing global leaderless single-network-round-trip consensus using commodity clocks.

Research from University of Michigan & Apple Inc. introduces ACID-compliant, strict serialisable transactions possible globally at any scale, at high throughput, with low latency.

Move over Paxos, ePaxos, Raft, Janus, Calvin, all now outdated consensus protocols, slow and fault intolerant.

We'll explain why your database must be leaderless, scalable & fast. The notion of copying data to analytics platforms is dead weight in the age of Data Mesh & Soft-AI. Your database can no longer be a single-process monolith from ages decades old if you are to be David against the Goliath of Big Tech.

Mick will explain hard problems in computer science solving elastic scalable ACID-compliant low-latency databases, explaining trade-offs from sharding data, shadow paging, sagas, to choosing eventual consistency & isolation consistency from the database.
