Distributed Database Systems and Edge/Fog/Cloud Computing

A white paper from the database management system experts at McObject.

A distributed database system is one in which the data belonging to a single logical database is distributed to two or more physical databases. Beyond that simple definition, there are a confusing number of possibilities for when, how, and why the data is distributed. Some are applicable to edge and/or fog computing, some others are applicable to fog and/or cloud computing, and some are applicable across the entire spectrum of edge, fog and cloud

This paper will cover the types of distributed database systems in the context of edge, fog and cloud computing, explain “when, how and why” the data is distributed, and why those details make certain distributed database systems applicable (or not) to specific needs in edge, fog and cloud computing.
