Distributed Computing

What is Distributed Computing?

If a single resource isn't powerful enough to solve a pretty big computational job, it is broken down into pieces/job/subjobs so that, it can be executed by a single resource. Single resource may be a Desktop PC, Workstation, Cluster. Distributed is computing in small scale with respect to a geographical area. Distributed Computing has the following characteristics.
  • Single System Image (SSI) of resources (Clusters of Clusters, Cluster of Workstations)
  • Some what, not necessarily Decentralized scheduling, administering and job management
  • limited number of resources
  • Most of the resources are homogeneous
