distributed catalog

A catalog location in the Central Admin Server Option. Image files in the catalog are distributed to the central administration server from every managed media server. These distributed files are small because they do not contain the entire catalog. They contain only information about the backup set. The history files, which contain detailed information about the backup set, remain on the managed media server.
