ABSTRACT
<p>One of the most significant changes in computer technology during the 1970s and 1980s was the move away from centralized supercomputers connected to dozens of "dumb terminals" toward distributed computing. In distributed computing, a majority of the computing power in a local area network resides in the computers that users directly access. Researchers learned that placing the computational resources as close as possible to the end users prevented a resource bottleneck at the supercomputer, reduced the networking cost, and provided superior service to users.</p>
