Chapter 3. Introduction to Client/Server... > Upsizing: What to Worry About

Upsizing: What to Worry About

Suppose that your database is using Microsoft Access as both the front end and the back end. Although an Access database on a file server might have been sufficient for a while, the need for better performance, enhanced security, or one of the other benefits that a back-end database provides compels your company (or your client's company) to upsize to a client/server architecture. You have already created the Access tables. Those tables may even contain volumes of data. In this scenario, it might make sense to upsize.

Because you designed all the tables as Access tables, they must be upsized to the back-end database server. Upsizing involves moving tables from a local Access database (or from any PC database) to a back-end database server that usually runs on Unix, Windows 2000, Windows NT Server, and OS/2 LAN Server or as a Novell NetWare NLM.
