Client/server architecture

HCL Informix® products conform to the client/server software-design model.

Application or clients can be on the computer housing the database server or on a different computer. Client applications issue requests for services and data from the database server. The database server responds by providing the services and data that the client requested.

You use a network protocol together with a network programming interface to connect and transfer data between the client and the database server.
