From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  distributed system
  distributed systems
  
     A collection of (probably heterogeneous) automata whose
     distribution is transparent to the user so that the system
     appears as one local machine.  This is in contrast to a
     network, where the user is aware that there are several
     machines, and their location, storage replication, load
     balancing and functionality is not transparent.  Distributed
     systems usually use some kind of client-server organisation.
  
     Distributed systems are considered by some to be the "next
     wave" of computing.
  
     Distributed Computing Environment is the Open Software
     Foundation's software architecture for distributed systems.
