while some answer is fine, this is just an opener to a wider question the interviewer is trying to drive at. A good answer would briefly describe some theory of distributed systems and better bring out some experiences of building a distributed system. Preferably from personal experience OR definitely from something you have studied deeply.

I didn't have experience with such systems. So, told the person.
