Definition - What does Client/Server Architecture mean?
Client/server architecture may also be referred to as a networking computing model because all the requests and services are delivered over a network.
Techopedia explains Client/Server Architecture
Client/server architecture works when the client computer sends a resource or process request to the server over the network connection, which is then processed and delivered to the client. A server computer can manage several clients simultaneously, whereas one client can be connected to several servers at a time, each providing a different set of services. In its simplest form, the Internet is also based on client/server architecture where the Web server serves many simultaneous users with Web page and or website data.
