Client-Server System Installation & Support
The client–server model of computing partitions tasks or workloads between the providers of a resource or service (servers), and service requesters (clients/workstations). A server host runs one or more server programs which share their resources with clients. Your computer, the client generally does not share any of its resources, but requests shared information from the server(s).
Examples of computer applications that use the client–server model are Email, network printing, a shared QuickBooks Company file, and the World Wide Web.
MainStream Technologies will make recommendations on whether or not a client-server network is suitable for your particular application. With the efficiency and low-cost introduction of cloud technology (Google Apps for Work), we find that many small businesses can forego the initial expense and maintenance overhead requirements that often accompany server-based networks.
