Abstract:

This research addressed the file location problem for both program and data sharing. In particular, dependencies between programs and data files have been considered, as well as their impact on the optimal distribution of files in the network. Having reviewed existing file location models, a distinction between data sharing and program and data sharing was established. Subsequently, the problems of creating and operating distributed data bases were considered with brief exemplary solutions for these problems being offered. A three dimensional partitioning of the file location problem was employed as the framework for the main body of this research.
