Client-Server system

CitectSCADA's client-server architecture allows the components of a system to be distributed across a number of computers on a LAN, creating a system that offers geographical flexibility and performance benefits.

Each component is simply identified within the project by an address, allowing the location and hardware requirements for each to be considered independently.

The diagram below demonstrates how this example can still be configured within a single cluster.

Each server also acts as a Control Client across the system architecture.
