Applications often have consistency requirements beyond those guaranteed by the underlying eventually consistent storage system. In this work, we present an approach that guarantees monotonic read consistency and read your writes consistency by running a special middleware component on the same server as the application. We evaluate our approach using both simulation and real world experiments on Cloud storage systems.
