 Title: Trading Consistency for Availability in Distributed Systems Authors: Friedman, RoyBirman, Ken Keywords: computer sciencetechnical report Issue Date: Apr-1996 Publisher: Cornell University Citation: http://techreports.library.cornell.edu:8081/Dienst/UI/1.0/Display/cul.cs/TR96-1579 Abstract: This paper shows that two important classes of actions, {\em non left commuting}\/ and {\em strongly non commuting}, cannot be executed by concurrent partitions in a system that provides serializable services. This result indicates that there is an inherent limitation to the ability of systems to provide services in a consistent manner during network partitions.
