Amazon discusses the concept of "eventual consistency."  Cassandra uses eventual consistency
in a design similar to Dynamo.
> Supporting session consistency would be useful and relatively easy to add: we already
have the concept of a Memtable (see http://wiki.apache.org/cassandra/MemtableSSTable ) to
"stage" updates in before flushing to disk; if we applied mutations to a session-level memtable
on the coordinator machine (that is, the machine the client is connected to), and then did
a final merge from that table against query results before handing them to the client, we'd
get it almost for free.
> Of course, the devil is in the details; thrift doesn't provide any hooks for session-level
data out of the box, but we could do this with a threadlocal approach fairly easily.  CASSANDRA-569
has some (probably out of date now) code that might be useful here.
