Client/Server Computing

Client/Server computing is a computing model in which client and server computers communicate with each other over a network. In client/server computing, a server takes requests from client computers and shares its resources, applications and/or data with one or more client computers on the network, and a client is a computing device that initiates contact with a server in order to make use of a shareable resource.

From the first client/server computing model introduced at Xerox PARC in the 1970s to today's highly advanced client server computing networks, our client/server computing dictionary offers a glossary of key terms you need to know.
