Description: The research abstract Distributed Computing and Advantages & Distributed Systems Architecture speaks about distributed computing and its advantages. The research paper says that distributed computing comes close to the working of super computers although much more has to be achieved in the field. It is not just the application standards that sets distributed computing far away from Super Computer but also the cost that is incurred by maintaining a colossal application like that.
The distributed computing models greatest advantage is that it works on scalability. Distributed computing works on increasing CPU powers and communications bandwidth.
How distributed computing works: A distributed computing works on many software agents installed on client systems. There needs to be a dedicated clients’ management server. There may also be requesting clients with software that allows them to submit jobs along with lists of their required resources. An agent running on a processing client detects when the system is idle, notifies the management server that the system is available for processing, and usually requests an application package. The client then receives an application package from the server and runs the software when it has spare CPU cycles, and sends the results back to the server. If the user of the client system needs to run his own applications at any time, control is immediately returned, and processing of the distributed application package ends.
Conclusion: The research paper concludes on a note specifying the advantages of distributed computing. It says that Distributed computing provides efficient solutions to the clients within the company’s firewall. Distributed computing primarily focuses on increasing the memory of the computers by leaps and bounds and increasing the CPU powers of the computer alongside communication bandwidth. Much has been done in the arena and still much has to be done until it reaches somewhere close to the Super Computer.
