What is a Client Server? Print

  • 18

A client server network is connected the same way as a peer to peer network. The only difference is that there are one or more servers connected to the network as well as PCs. The server has different software loaded on it. This software gives the PCs on the network more functionality. The purpose of a server is to centralize everything, so that the PCs on the network can collaborate more effectively. Servers are also setup to perform a backup of all of the files every night. This protects any users from losing any files if a PC were to fail.
