Distributed Database Management System (DDBMS)
A distributed DBMS is a software system that manages a distributed database, which consists of data that are partitioned and/or replicated among interconnected server sites. The primary objective of a distributed DBMS is to hide data distribution so that it appears as one logical database system to the clients while providing better performance or availability.
Distributed DBMS started in the late 1970s [2, 10, 12] with shared-nothing parallel database systems , which were designed for achieving higher performance by exploiting parallelism in transaction workloads. Work on distributed DBMS was mainly motivated by the need to manage data for large organizations having different offices and subsidiaries but slow computer networks hampered the adoption of DDBMS . In the 1990s, advances in computer networking coupled with the growing business needs to manage distributed data fueled the work on...
