How Your Data is Stored, or, The Laws of the Imaginary Greeks

I wish I’d had this essay at hand many years ago when I had to explain to business executives why ‘distributed computing’ and ‘distributed data storage’ were not simple matters, especially when money was involved. They would not have read it through, of course, but after the first quarter or third they’d probably have gotten a clue, at least more rapidly than using the more traditional methods (meetings; more meetings; writings on the blackboard/whiteboard; flying in expensive consultants; etc.)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
