Description

From University Video Communications' catalog:

"Computers have evolved from batch to time-sharing to networked workstations. Network computing is the next logical progression in computer architectures. With network computing, users are able to get maximum benefit from existing computers of all types and to fully integrate specialized hardware technology such as parallel processors and database machines. This integration is made possible by defining interface mechanisms that allow computations to be distributed among a heterogeneous collection of computers. The interface mechanism is designed such that the computation distribution is handled automatically (without user intervention)."
