Network computing is the generic term for the networking of several computers for the optimal use of computer resources. The idea behind this is that a single computer does not have the same performance as a computer that is connected to a network of
several computers and can thus expand computer resources or server capacities, for example, as needed. The term network computing says nothing about the constellation of computers, namely whether they
arepeer-to-peer networks, client-server architectures
or other constellations. In business network computing, a company makes targeted use of the resources of all computer capacities in the company's own network. The aim is to reduce IT costs and build up a competitive advantage over other competitors. Through the optimal use of existing capacities, the so-called Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of the company can be significantly reduced.
