ZapThink President Jason Bloomberg to Speak at Enterprise Data World Conference

MCLEAN, VA (PRWEB) March 01, 2012

Today, ZapThink, a Dovèl Technologies Company, announced that Jason Bloomberg will be speaking at Dataversity’s Enterprise Data World on the topic of Dropping ACID: Architecting with Eventual Consistency in the Cloud. His talk is scheduled for 11:00 AM on Wednesday, May 2, at the Omni Hotel at CNN Center.

“It’s impossible for any distributed computer system to simultaneously guarantee immediate consistency, availability, and partition tolerance,” said Jason Bloomberg, President of ZapThink. “Most enterprise database management systems are inherently partition intolerant, thus allowing for atomic, consistent, isolated, and durable (ACID) transactionality. However, Cloud Computing environments must be partition tolerant in order to achieve the elasticity benefit so important to the Cloud. Highly available Cloud applications must therefore forego immediate data consistency, and with it, ACID. What’s left? BASE: Basic availability, soft state, and eventual consistency.”
