Client Server Management HandiGuide®
The client/server model has become one of the central concepts used in network computing. Most applications written today use the client/server model as does the Internet's main program, TCP/IP and the DNS addressing model. In marketing, the term Client Server has been used to distinguish distributed computing by smaller dispersed computers from the “monolithic” centralized computing of mainframe computers. But this distinction has largely disappeared as mainframes and their applications have also turned to the client/server model and become part of network computing.

The Best Practices Report says this about the book
