Agreement in a distributed system is complicated but required. ScyllaDB gained lightweight transactions through Paxos but the latter has a cost of 3X roundtrips. Raft can allow consistent transactions without the performance penalty. Beyond LWT, we plan to integrate Raft with most aspects of ScyllaDB making a leap forward in manageability and consistency.
