In this class, we will survey a range of "NoSQL" systems, which offer different consistency properties, or different query languages (or both) than those offered by relational database systems. The two readings above describe one influential NoSQL system from Amazon called "Dynamo", and a discussion of some of the key ideas in support of relaxing consistency from the CTO of Amazon.
