Client-Server Architecture

     

Client-server architecture can be considered as a network environment that exchanges information between a server machine  and a client machine where server has some resources that can be shared by different clients.

In a Client/server architecture individual computers (known as clients) are connected to a central computer which is known as ?server?.
Let?s take an example of a file server to understand the core process of a client/server network, the file server acts as a storage space on the network for the files, spreadsheets, databases, etc. Instead of storing these records on every individual computer, the file server allows the clients to store their files on one central computer and make them sharable. The client-server architecture is beneficial in reducing the multiple iterations of a single file and allowing the organization to have one centralized point for every computer to access the same file.

  
The interaction between a lamp and an electrical socket can be considered as a interaction between client and server is just like. In the example the electrical socket is just like a server and the lamp works like a client.
