As a general question what determines whether an application requires its own server? We have an app that I know is driven by a SQL-Server 2005 database, that runs on its own server, but …… there’s only 1 user!?! How easy or practical is it to install SQL on a laptop and then have the app run from their. I know there is some tool/client already on the laptop – but just wondered the logistics of whether you can run an app driven by SQL from an XP laptop, or what comes into play that determines whether it needs a Server. Please keep your answers low tech and management friendly.
