A.C.I.D. (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, Durability) is a set of properties of database transactions intended to guarantee validity even in the event of programming errors or power failures. A.C.I.D. allows users to solely focus on their programming logic, without having to worry about additional failures a system might encounter. This database property ensures that the user does not have to write additional code to correctly implement detection and resolution of failures.
