In the traditional networking scenario, applications are installed and run on the local workstation utilizing that PC’s resources (hard disk, RAM, and CPU). Applications can then grab data off of a server, such as accessing a Word document stored on a remote server. Client/Server takes a modular approach, separating large pieces of a program into multiple parts, each piece running on different machines but still communicating with each other. Microsoft Exchange Server and the Outlook client would be an example. The Network Computing (NC) model uses hardware that contains its own CPU, RAM, video, a method of connection (NIC or modem), and possibly a hard disk. Applications are downloaded from a server and executed locally, such as Java apps, still using the local workstations resources.
