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 that can run globally at scale, at high throughput, with low latency.

This will be a run-through of

  • the importance of ACID transactions in Apache Cassandra,

  • how previous consensus protocols work,

  • how Accord improves on these to provide its industry leading characteristics.
