distributed database

[di′strib·yəd·əd ′dad·ə·‚bās]
(computer science)
A database maintained in physically separated locations and supported by a computer network so that it is possible to access all parts of the database from various points in the network.

distributed database

A collection of several different databases that looks like a single database to the user. An example is the Internet Domain Name System (DNS).

distributed database

A database physically stored in two or more computer systems. Although geographically dispersed, a distributed database system manages and controls the entire database as a single collection of data. If redundant data are stored in separate databases due to performance requirements, updates to one set of data will automatically update the additional sets in a timely manner. See replication.
