The CAP theorem was proposed by Eric Brewer in early 2000. In this, three system attributes have been discussed within the distributed databases. That is-
* Consistency- in this, all the nodes see the same data at the same time.
* Availability- it gives us a guarantee that there will be a response for every request made to the system about whether it was successful or not.
* Partition tolerance- it is the quality of NoSQL database management system which states that the system will work even if a part of the system has failed or is not working.
A distributed database system might provide only 2 of the 3 above qualities.
