Definition - What does Distributed Database Management System (DDBMS) mean?

A distributed database management system (DDBMS) is a set of multiple, logically interrelated databases distributed over a network. They provide a mechanism that makes the distribution of data transparent to users.

Techopedia explains Distributed Database Management System (DDBMS)

DDBMS is a centralized application that manages a distributed database. This database system synchronizes data periodically and ensures that any change in data made by users is universally updated in the database.

DDBMS is widely used in data warehousing, where huge volumes of data are processed and accessed by numerous users or database clients at the same time. This database system is used to manage data in networks, maintain confidentiality and handle data integrity. A distributed database management system is designed for heterogeneous database platforms that focus on heterogeneous database management systems.
