a collection of autonomous computers linked by a computer network and equipped with distributed system software that enables the computers to coordinate their activities and to share hardware, software, and data
A distributed system is a collection of independent computers that appear to the users of the system as a single computer (tanenbaum). See also Goscinski.(empty) Fault Tolerance: is the ability to provide service even in the face of system failures.(empty)(empty) IP(empty)(empty)(empty)
a collection of applications, running on various (possibly heterogeneous) machines, whose distribution is transparent to the user so that the system appears as if running on the user's local machine
a collection of autonomous computing entities, hardware or software, connected by some communication medium
a collection of processors that do not share memory or a clock
a collection of service components that are distributed over network while offering services to clients as a single application
a computer system in which data processing tasks are carried out using physically dispersed computer systems that are linked together
a dynamic collection of computers linked by a network, running software designed to provide an integrated computing environment to users
a far less attractive target to enemy states, is much better for disaster recovery, and is controlled locally, rather than corporately or by the government
a program or set of programs that runs using more than one computing resource
a system in which the the functionality and the real time data base are split up among several computers, where e
a system in which you can't get your work done because a computer has failed that you've never even heard of
a system consisting of a group of connected computers sharing software, information or load.
A system made up of one or more applications that are built from interacting clients and remote objects.
Refers to computer systems in multiple locations throughout an organization working in a cooperative fashion, with the system at each location serving the needs of that location but also able to receive information from other systems, and supply information to other systems within the network.
A collection of computer systems, tied together by communications networks for the purpose of sharing resources; end users do not need to be aware of the physical location of the shared resources.
A computer system in which computing, storage, and other resources are dispersed throughout several or many locations.
A system in which various compnents occur on different systems usually connected via a network.
Computer system with a server and clients (or terminals), that are connected by network such as LAN (local area network).
A corporate system that can function independently from the host to provide local processing capabilities that meet end-user requirements, yet can connect into the host network for file transfer, access to other applications, and host-specific functions.
