Hello everyone, let me know any questions


Great geo location btw! But please provide some answers on the additional questions.

If you work at Netapp and your occupation is thus IT, then I am confused why you gave a answer like that.

Hi Robbie, after some research, this is my answer.

In a decentralized system there is no single decision point, each node of the system can make its own decision, and the result of all responses is the collective response.

On the other hand, in a distributed system, the processing is shared in multiple nodes, but the decisions are centralized, and it knows the state of the entire system.
