Performance vs Consistency in Geo-replicated systems

We presented, in a paper in the top conference on operating systems (OSDI), principled approaches to address the increasing use of geo-replication for reducing user-perceived latency has highlighted the tension between performance and consistency in global replicated systems. We presented methods to make systems fast when possible, while resorting to stronger consistency levels only when necessary for meeting user expectations.
