Resource-Sharing Computer System
  • A computer system which uses its resources, including input/output (I/O) devices, storage, central processor (arithmetic and logic units), control units, and software processing capabilities, to enable one or more users to manipulate data and process co-resident programs in an apparently simultaneous manner. The term includes systems with one or more of the capabilities commonly referred to as time-sharing, multi-programming, multi-accessing, multi-processing, or concurrent processing. (DODD 5200. 28M;)
