With the introduction of computer networks and distributed computing, the utility of computing resources has been increased compared to individual isolated resources.Distributed systems enable multiple users to share the same resource, making the effectiveness of the resources high while reducing the per user cost of the resources. From time to time new distributed computing systems have been introduced to the market through extensive research carried out in academia as well as by industry-based researchers.Client-server systems, peer-to-peer computing, cluster computing and grid computing are some of the most popular distributed computing platforms introduced to the market in the past.Most of these systems are still in common use due to their popularity and effectiveness in carrying out computing tasks in an efficient manner.Cloud computing has been the most recent addition to this long line of distributed systems.
