Components of CAP Theorem

The CAP theorem revolves around three key properties of distributed systems: Consistency, Availability, and Partition Tolerance. Each of these properties plays a vital role in determining the behavior of a distributed system under various conditions.

a. Consistency

Consistency in distributed systems refers to the degree to which the system maintains a single, up-to-date version of the data. There are different levels of consistency, depending on the requirements of the system.

  • Strong consistency: In a strongly consistent system, all nodes see the same data at the same time
