Advantage of Client/Server Database System - DDBMS


Advantage of Client/Server Database System

1) Client-server system has less expensive platforms to support applications that had previously been running only on large and expensive mini or mainframe computers.

2) Clients offer icon-based menu-driven interface, which is superior to the traditional command-line, dumb terminal interface typical of mini and mainframe computer systems.

3) Client/server environment facilitates more productive work-by the users and making better use of existing data.

4) Client-server database system is more flexible as compared to the centralized system.

5) The server machine can be custom-built (tailored) to the DBMS function and thus can provide a better DBMS performance.

6) A single database can be shared across several distinct client (application) systems.
