Q: what are the relative advantages of centralized and distributed databases ?
A: Advantages of Distributed Systems over Centralized ones 1:Incremental growth:Computing power can be added in small increments 2:Reliability:If one machine crashes, [ the system as a whole can still survive 3:Speed: A distributed system may have more total computing power than a mainframe 4:Open system: This is the most important point and themost characteristic point of a distributed
