8. Benefits of a distributed database

Advantages of distributed database
Resilient. A problem in one part of the organisation will not stop other branches from working
Security. Staff access can be limited to only their portion of the database
Network traffic is reduced so reducing bandwidth costs.
Local database still works even if the company network is temporarily broken
Scaling: If a new store or branch is opened then it is straight forward to add an extra node to the distributed database
High performance: Queries and updates are largely local so the there is no network bottleneck
Easier to keep errors local rather than the entire organisation being affected.
