A server-centric network in which some network resources are stored on a file server, while processing power is distributed among workstations and the file server.
A local area network (LAN) structure in which network resources are centralized and controlled from one or more servers. Individual workstations or clients (such as PCs) must request services through the server(s). Also see Client Client/Server Network Server
Architecture that allows one computer to get information from another. Software applications run on a powerful computer (the server) which is connected over networks to PCs (the clients).
A network in which individual computers (clients), use a central computer (server) for such services as file storage, printing, and communications. See peer-to-peer.
is a network in which one or more computers are servers and provide services to the other computers, which are called clients.
type of network in which particular computers - servers - are responsible for resources and providing these resources for other computers - clients. There can be many clients and one server, or vice versa. Servers can have one specific type of resource to control. Mentioned in: Types of Networks.

A network set-up in which one of more computers – the clients – make service requests from a computer called the server, which fulfills them. Most business applications written today are designed for the client/server network model. See also Peer-to-Peer Network.
A network of two or more computers that rely on a central server to mediate the connections or provide additional system resources. This dependence on a server differentiates a client/server network from a peer-to-peer network.
a configuration where all people store their files on a central computer, and files are accessed directly from where they are stored on the central computer. The central computer is the server, and the client is the computer that can access the information from the central computer.
