Re: Eventually Consistent Relational Database?

In response to Eric Day's post on "Eventually Consistent Relational Database?"... I started posting a comment there, but I realized I have my own blog for this sort of thing. :)

I've been thinking the same thing, it's nice to hear I'm not the only one. This is a neglected area of "cloud" development, mostly because it's a big scary problem. Everyone says "use NoSQL", but if we had strategies/systems to give us EC RDBMS solutions, nobody would use key/value storage (except where it actually made sense). NoSQL is a big golden hammer nowadays. It works, but it sure takes a lot of effort to code stuff the storage layer should be able to handle (joins, etc.).
