Hybrid Logical Clocks

The theory of distributed systems promoted the use of logical clocks by introducing the idea of causality tracking as an abstraction for reasoning about concurrency between events in the system. In practice, a lot of systems continue to operate using physical time, which presents difficulties due to clock synchronization drift. In an effort to bridge the gap between physical and logical time, HybridTime combines both logical and physical times in one system. [Read More]
