Abstract:

The distributed information systems area has seen a rapid growth in terms of research interest as well as in terms of practical applications in the past three years. Distributed systems are becoming a reality, however truly distributed databases are still rare. For a large organization with a distributed computer network the problem of distributing a database includes determination of 1 How can the database be split into components to be allocated to distinct sites, and 2 How much of the data should be replicated and how should the replicated fragments be allocated In this paper we design models for solving both of the above problems.
