PrimeBase XT Transactional Engine

The transaction system described by
http://www.primebase.com/xt/download/pbxt_white_paper.pdf and http://dev.mysql.com/tech-resources/articles/pbxt-storage-engine.html is very appealing.

But I missed how PBXT insures that writes to disk (to multiple files) happen in such an order that the transactions are recoverable or disposable after loss of power.

What are the hidden assumptions here? Received on Tue Mar 13 2007 - 10:22:16 CDT
