Image Number 5 for United States Patent #6370139.
A system and method for providing information dispersal in a networked computing environment are described. A plurality of database servers is distributed throughout a networked computing environment. Each database server includes a database storing segments of information staged for retrieval upon user request. A user system uploads a message specifying an information request. The information request identifies a set of the information staged on the database servers for retrieval. A central controller is communicatively interfaced to the user system and each of the database servers and controls the database servers to disperse the information requested in the uploaded message.
