Client server computing
Client-server computing refers to a way of describing the relationship between the devices in a network wherethe tasks that need to be carried out are distributed among various machines on the network.

A client is a machine which requests a service. For example, a PC running a word processing application which the user wishes to print out.

A server is a machine which is dedicated to providing a particular function or service requested a client. They include file server, print server, and fax servers.

A client server system allows computer power to be distributed where it is most needed. This approach has the following advantages:
i) It reduces network communication costs
ii) It allows the central computer to be used for administrative tasks such as network management.
iii) The technological flexibility of this type of system allows the use of sophisticated applications such as multimedia.
