Spanner: Google's Globally-Distributed Database

http://j.mp/Ot0q9M  (Google Research)

  "Spanner is Google's scalable, multi-version, globally-distributed, and
   synchronously-replicated database. It is the first system to
   distribute data at global scale and support externally-consistent
   distributed transactions. This paper describes how Spanner is
   structured, its feature set, the rationale underlying various design
   decisions, and a novel time API that exposes clock uncertainty. This
   API and its implementation are critical to supporting external
   consistency and a variety of powerful features: non-blocking reads in
   the past, lock-free read-only transactions, and atomic schema changes,
   across all of Spanner."
