In my opinion, a client- server would be the best system to use for an organization; verses the Web-based and the stand-alone PC based systems, because the client-server based provides set-ups and can be altered without disturbing the clients, while the other two systems require accessing every peer in the network (www.client-serverbased). For example, the client server arrangements aid security requires efforts, because there are fewer servers, limiting the number of persons with access to them and increasing security features of the servers. Client-server networks can become congested and overload the server with request, while P2P request efforts improve with the number of participants. Client-server users can also suffer when a vital server fails, while the evenly distributed duties in the (P2P) system ensure the network will be operational while not at full capacity. A client-server describes a type of computer application architecture within the network computing that designate tasks between clients that instigate request and servers that process request.
