network transparency

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

The property of a network operating system which enables the user of a network to be unaware that he or she is interacting with a network of computers. For example, the operating system should allow the user to refer to files by a symbolic name which does not contain information about which computer that file is currently stored on. Effectively network transparency should give the user the impression that they are interacting with a single computer.
