Application development platforms have evolved to a state where several features available within an Environment are now assumed to be standard across any platform. However, transactional guarantees for distributed transactions still remain a challenge even in the most modern platforms. Even as applications are typically developed to meets business needs using various tactics, we often observe that these do not meet the required level of transaction guarantees while executing in live, mission-critical environments.

Currently, Application programmers might adopt techniques such as two phase commit , many approaches to quorum, raft, paxos etc. to enable some level of guarantee with respect to distributed transactions. Our position is that it's time to bake this capability into the platform so that application developers can simply write application logic assuming transactional guarantees at scale.

In this presentation, we want to discuss practical approaches to scaling distributed transactions at a platform level. Our goal is to raise awareness of existing techniques and patterns, the constraints under which there techniques provide optimum result and a framework in which one can assess the need to change the techniques implemented.
