Consistency Models — Consistency & Consistency Levels(II)— Distributed Data Stores

A consistency model is a contract between a (distributed)system and the applications that run on it. This model is a set of guarantees made by the distributed system so that the client can have expected behaviour across read & write operations.
Consistency Models
