Currently my gold standard for these things. Apple acquired and shutdown FoundationDB, which appeared awesome too. There's been at least two that combined high-performance with higher consistency. CochroachDB's people indicated in prior conversations they're trying to do something similar to Google's but without the GPS reliance. They've been blogging about their techniques for doing so with them hitting HN often. I suggest reading those to evaluate whether you think their methods make sense.

Underneath all that, the code has to be written with correctness and stability in mind from the beginning to end. That's the part they skipped. It's on their blog, too.
