BASE properties are the common properties of recently evolved NoSQL databases. According to CAP theorem, a BASE system does not guarantee consistency. This is a contrived acronym that is mapped to following property of a system in terms of the CAP theorem:
- Basically available indicates that the system is guaranteed to be available
- Soft stateindicates that the state of the system may change over time, even without input. This is mainly due to the eventually consistent model.
- Eventual consistency indicates that the system will become consistent over time, given that the system doesn’t receive input during that time.
