Distributed Control System

[…] is a type of control system for industrial systems. It’s distinct from other types of control systems in that it’s not run by a single computer. Instead, a DCS distributes the workload to a number of smaller systems throughout the facility. In many ways, it’s similar to cloud computing, in that work is spread out rather than centralized.
