what are the relative advantages of centralized and distributed databases ?
Advantages of Distributed Systems over Centralized ones
1:Incremental growth:Computing power can be added in small
2:Reliability:If one machine crashes, [ the system as a whole can
A distributed system may have more total computing power than a
This is the most important point and themost characteristic point
of a distributed
Since it is an open system it is always ready to communicate with
an open system that scales has an advantage over a perfectly closed
and self-contained system.
Economic:ANd Microprocessors offer a better price/performance than
Disadvantages of Distributed Systems over Centralized ones
1:As i previously told you distributed systems will have an
inherent security issue.
2:Networking:If the network gets saturated then problems with
transmission will surface.
3:Software:There is currently very little less software support for
4:Troubleshooting:Troubleshooting and diagnosing problems in a
distributed system can also become more difficult, because the
analysis may require connecting to remote nodes or inspecting
communication between nodes.
