Cloud computing represents perhaps the biggest paradigm shift in the delivery architecture of information services, since the invention of timesharing or the introduction of the client/server network. Source: Forrester The term cloud is used as a metaphor for the Internet, based on how the Internet is depicted in computer network diagrams and is an abstraction for the complex infrastructure it conceals. And thus, cloud computing is the style of computing in which functionality [compute (applications) & storage (data)] is provided as a service over the internet or over an internal/external, location-transparent, centralized ...
property, if its outcome (the resulting database state, the values of the database's data) is equal to the outcome of its transactions executed serially, i.e., sequentially without overlapping in time. Transactions are normally executed concurrently (they overlap), since this is the most efficient way. Serializability is the major correctness criterion for concurrent transactions' executions. It is considered the highest level of isolation between transactions , and plays an essential role in concurrency control . As such it is supported in all general purpose database systems. Strong strict two-phase locking (SS2PL) ...
