Art of Distributed

Part 1: Rethinking about distributed computing models

I ‘m getting a lot of questions lately about the distributed computing, especially distributed computing model, and MapReduce, such as: What is MapReduce? Can MapReduce fit in all situations? How we can compares it with other technologies such as Grid Computing? And what is the best solution to our situation? So I decide to write about the distributed computing article in two parts. First one about the distributed computing model and what is the difference between them. In the second part I will discuss the reliability, and distributed storage systems.

Download the article in PDF format.
Download the article in MS Word format.

I wait for your comments, and questions, and I will answer it in part two.
