Distributed database

6 New Member
A distributed database is a specialization of distributed computing. A distributed database allows certain data specific operations to be distributed to one or more different machines. This means that the decision to perform an operation occurs on one machine and then one or more other machines end up performing the operation. Distributed database operations include searching, updating, and deleting data. Distributed computing operations can be much more varied. They might include performing calculations, scheduling tasks, data transfers, etc.

Well Talking about distributed databes/distributed computing, more security for the data is required in case of distributed databases. High Network Bandwidth required in case if the amount of data transfer is got to be very large else we might end up with Network issues.
