Discussion on: Eventual vs Strong Consistency in Distributed Databases

Really well explained, Saurabh. These are the issues at the core of our drive to provide a low latency experience on for all our readers globally. The concept of eventual consistency is strongly at play in:

How our users interact with our CDN and how the CDN interacts with the origin server. I also want to distribute the origin server that could make reads from eventually consistent follower DBs.

We already make use of an eventually consistent distributed search via Algolia.

I find the verbiage in this domain hard to wrap my head around even if the topic is reasonably straightforward, so posts like this are super useful for people I think.
