This article concerns the system requirements depending on the role the computer is playing.
The three main computer roles are:
A computer shared by network clients. Data is being served and/or stored at this computer.
- Network Client
A computer connected to a server through some kind of network. No data is stored on the client.
- Single User
A computer with both a small server and a client so that data can be edited and stored directly on this computer without further connections.
