    - The first phase in committing a distributed transaction is the prepare phase.

    - In this phase, the database does not actually commit or roll back the transaction.

    - Instead, all nodes referenced in a distributed transaction are told to prepare to commit.

    - When a node is told to prepare, it can respond in the following ways:

    1. Prepared - Data on the node has been modified by a statement in the distributed transaction, and the node has successfully prepared.

    2. Read-only - No data on the node has been, or can be, modified (only queried), so no preparation is necessary.

    3. Abort - The node cannot successfully prepare.
