Peer-to-Peer architecture
A type of network in which each workstation has equivalent capabilities and responsibilities. This differs from client/server architectures
, in which some computers are dedicated to serving the others. Peer-to-peer networks are generally simpler and less expensive, but they usually do not offer the same performance under heavy loads.
