How do Cassandra, Riak, and PostgreSQL Behave Under Partition?

Kyle Kingsbury tested over eight databases to see how they behave under partition. In this talk, he explains the impact of partitions on consistency, isolation, and transactions across multiple databases. Toward the end of the talk, he pays particular attention to Cassandra.


This talk was given at the DataStax Cassandra SF Users meetup. Be sure to join us for Cassandra Week! It starts on Monday, April 28th.
