Computer Networks

Jaydipsingh B Thakor | Nisarg C Joshi

Abstract: The Primary purpose of a computer network is to share resources. A computer network is referred to as client/server if (at least) one of the computers is used to server other computers referred to as client. Besides the computers, other types of devices can be part of the network. In the early day of networking, there will be once central server that contains the data and all the clients can access this data through a Network Interface card. Later on client server architecture came into existence, where still burden is there on the server machine. To avoid the disadvantages in distributed computing was introduced which reduce the burden on the server by providing work sharing capabilities. This paper describes how the concept of distributed computing came into existence based on the advantages and disadvantages that raised in earlier networking concepts. The concept of distributed computing speaks that once data is available within the server (s), it should be able to be accessed and processed from any kind of client device like computer, mobile phone, PDA, etc.
