The Data Warehouse Development Life Cycle
Distributed Oracle Data Warehouses
Local autonomy means that data in the distributed network is owned
and managed by local hosts. For example, a site in California could
have a remote database that participates in a national distributed
system. While functioning as a part of the nationally distributed
network, the California database continues to process local
operations, independent from the overall distributed system.
No Reliance On A Central Site
Ideally, all sites are equally remote, in the sense that no one site
has governing authority over another node in the distributed
network. Each site retains its own data dictionary and security, and
each site functions as an independent database management system.

Data Warehousing", copyright 1997.
