## CAP Theorem and Big Data

The following article analyses the applicability of the CAP theorem to Big Data. I will explain the CAP theorem, explore the three of its characteristics, as well as provide the proof of the CAP theorem on an example that is closely related to Big Data use case. I will also briefly discuss couple of possible ways deal with the CAP-related issues in distributed Big Data applications and offer overview of those implementations that best fit each of the CAP properties.
