Centralized System is a type of network in which every node is connected to a single centralized system in which resources are served to other nodes by this system only.
If a resource is needed by any node, it is fetched from the centralized system. Any work or processing done by a node will be stored on the centralized system for later use.
Following are the advantages:
- Cost effective (One centralized system is needed for the storage of resources).
- If a node gets compromised or removed, then there is no issue because the data is lying on the centralized system.
Following are the dis-advantages:
- If a centralized system goes down, the nodes are of no use.
