Distributed Database Systems Course in Mianwali

Course Title: Distributed Database Systems

Course Overview:
Distributed Database Systems is a course that explores the principles, architecture, and implementation of databases distributed across multiple sites. Students will learn about the challenges and solutions associated with managing and querying distributed data, including data distribution, consistency, replication, and fault tolerance.

Course Objectives:

Understand the architecture and components of distributed database systems.
Learn about data distribution and replication strategies.
Study consistency models and concurrency control mechanisms.
Explore query processing and optimization in distributed environments.
Gain practical experience in designing and managing distributed databases.
Understand fault tolerance, recovery, and security in distributed systems.
Course Outline:
