n- tier Architecture

Posted By: Ruchi     Posted Date: November 10, 2008    Points:2   Category :Sql Server
Can any one explain what is the diff between 2 tier and 3- tier architecture in applications/database?

In 2- Tier architecture, the server holds both the application and the data. The application resides on the server rather than the client mechine.

In a 3- Tier architecture, the data and applications are split onto seperate servers, with the server-side distributed between a database server and an application server. The client is a front end, simply requesting and displaying data.
