In this paper we measure the value of partitioning into groups in two techniques used in distributed systems: cooperative work, a user application and load balancing which is a system application. The article begins with a state of the art description of the group approach, distinguishing processes, processors and communications. Performance measures have been carried out, showing the advantages of this approach for distributed systems.
