Distributed data processing.

CPA-Quantitative-Analysis-Section-4 BLOCK RELEASE

This refers to a mode of processing that distributes the computer processing work among multiple computers linked by a communication network. A common example of distributed processing is client/server computing which splits processing between clients and servers. Both are on the network, but each machine is assigned functions it is best suited to perform. The client is the point of entry for the required function. The server provides the client with services e.g. storage and processing of data, and also management of network activities.
