Up One Level

Distributed Processing


Spreading the organisation's computer processing load between two or more computers, often in geographically separate locations. If a organisation has the necessary financial and technical resources, distributed processing, with mirroring between sites, is an excellent contingency plan for sudden disasters.

Even if there is a total loss of one system, the remaining computer(s) can carry the load without disruption to users and without loss or corruption of data.
