  • Client-server systems - a distributed application that partitions tasks between the providers of a service, or servers, and requesters, or clients
  • Collaborative work - technologies that facilitate collaboration and connection between work teams, such as wikis
  • Database machines - or back end processor, either a computer or special hardware that stores and retrieves data from a database
  • Diffserv networks - or differentiated service networks, a computer networking architecture that specifies a scalable mechanism for classifying and managing network traffic on modern IP networks
  • Distributed databases - a database in which storage devices are not all attached to a common CPU
  • Distributed information systems - computers or systems that distribute information and computing across multiple platforms
  • File servers - a computer attached to a network whose purpose is providing shared disk access
  • Internet - a global system of interconnected computer networks that use Standard Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP)
  • Metacomputing - all computing used for the research and development and application of different kinds of computing
  • Peer to peer computing - or P2P, a distributed application architecture that partitions tasks or workloads among peers
