In this post, we will understand the difference between network operating system and a distributed operating system.
The main object of this system is to provide local services to remote clients.
The communication takes place depending on the files.
It is more scalable in comparison to Distributed Operating System.
It has less fault tolerance.
The rate of autonomy in a network operating system is high.
It is easy to implement.
The nodes of a network operating system can have different operating system.
The main objective of this system is to manage the resources of the hardware.
The communication takes place depending on messages and shared memory.
It is less scalable in comparison to Network Operating System.
The fault tolerance is high.
The rate of autonomy in a distributed operating system is less.
It is not easy to implement.
All the nodes of a distributed operating system should have same operating system.
