This paper presents two design approaches to avoid many complications introduced at both user and developer levels by the FLP impossibility. The first approach is appropriate in managed hosting environments, such as datacenters, and involves offering service guarantees with tunable success probabilities and remedial actions in the unlikely scenarios. The second is appropriate in open environments and advocates building fail-signal abstractions for hosting application-level replication.
