Many web companies deal with enormous data sizes and request rates beyond the capabilities of traditional database systems. This has led to the development of modern Web Data Platforms (WDPs). WDPs handle large amounts of data and activity through massively distributed infrastructures. To achieve performance and availability at Internet scale, WDPs restrict querying capability, and provide weaker consistency guarantees than traditional ACID transactions. The reduced functionality is sufficient for many web applications. High data and query rates also appear in Application Performance Management (APM).
