What is client server technology
Client server technology
It is a network of shared or distributed computing in which the tasks and computing power are split between the servers and clients. The servers store and process data common to the users across the organisation and these data can be accessed by any client.
In this networking requests are made by different clients to the server. Server then process the request and provide the desired result to the cleint. All the information are stored with the server. Server acts like a database which extract the relevant information to the client. In this way it becomes fast and client becomes thin.
The client server architecture is versatile, supports GUI and has modular infrastructure. The technology is described as a cost reduction technology. It includes fourth generation languages, relational databases, distributing computing etc.
