You Can’t Sacrifice Partition Tolerance

Just finished reading this excellent article by Coda Hale:

I thought the bit about yield versus uptime was very interesting, as was the bit about harvest (harvest = data available/complete data). Historically, [the corporate] we have built systems that sacrifice yield in the event of a failure. I like the challenge/opportunity of building a system that reduces harvest but maintains yield.
