Subject How does cassandra achieve Linearizability?
Date Fri, 10 Feb 2017 00:09:26 GMT
How does Cassandra achieve Linearizability with “Last write wins” (conflict
resolution methods based on time-of-day clocks) ?

Relying on synchronized clocks are almost certainly non-linearizable,
because clock timestamps cannot be guaranteed to be consistent with actual
event ordering due to clock skew. isn't it?

Thanks!
