Consistency without Clocks: The FaunaDB Distributed Transaction Protocol

The FaunaDB Distributed Transaction ProtocolWe will now describe the core FaunaDB transaction protocol. Inserting a transaction into the global transaction log is the only part of the FaunaDB protocol that requires global consensus across replicas. Each replica independently reads from the global transaction log and attempts to commit each transaction in the log. By having a single global log, FaunaDB has a global notion of "FaunaDB time" that is agreed upon by every node in the system. The beauty of the FaunaDB transaction protocol is its simplicity.
