Two Data Centers Used For Retail Credit Authorization Are Located In Two Differe

Two data centers used for retail credit authorization are located in two different major population centers, which are separated from each other by a large zone of very little population. Each data center is intended to cover a particular geographical area and thus contains data that reflect the account status of the cardholders in that area only. Communication between both data centers occurs only in case a cardholder from one geographical area shops in a retail credit establishment of the geographical area covered by the other data center.

a.      Classify the relationship between the data centers as either client/server or peer to peer.

b.      Classify the database of the retail credit system as either partitioned or replicated.

c.      Should the two data centers be consolidated into a single, centralized, cloud-based facility? Why or why not?
