CAP and your Application
We’ll cover the CAP theorem and how it applies to modern networked databases. What do Consistency, Availability and Partition tolerance mean to your application design? How do solutions like Cassandra, Postgres or Mongo prioritize these concerns and why might you choose one over the other?
Finally, how does CAP(Brewer’s theorem) apply to users of your app? If you have more that one web server you are a distributed system, and subject to CAP as well.
