such a scenario? Why? Which scenario would be better suited to a data-server architecture? Answer: With powerful clients, it still makes sense to have a client- server system, rather than a fully centralized system. If the data-server architecture is used, the powerful clients can off-load all the long and compute intensive transaction processing work from the server, freeing it to perform only the work of satisfying read-write requests. even if the transaction-server model is used, the clients still take care of the user-interface work, which is typically very compute-intensive. A fully distributed system might seem attractive in the presence of powerful clients, but client-server systems still have the advantage of simpler concurrency control and recovery schemes to be implemented 17

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
