CAP Theorem

This theorem states that given a network partition (a split brain situation), a distributed system can either favor consistency or availability.

Example: Imagine that you are part of a fully remote wedding. Let’s imagine that you answer “the big question” with yes and let’s imagine that your phone/internet connection breaks before your significant other can answer the same question. What do you do? Do you say that you are married/not married (in which case you would favor availability) or do you say “I don’t know” (in which case you would favor consistency).

The PACELC theorem is an extension to the CAP theorem: In case of a network Partition, one has to choose between Availability and Consistency, Else, when a system does not have a partition, one has to choose between Latency and Consistency.

Martin Kleppmann posted an interesting article in which he explains that neither CAP nor PACELC are a good way to think about distributed systems.
