  Three-tier (computing) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with Multitier architecture.
In computing, Three-tier is a client-server architecture in which the user interface, functional process logic ("business rules"), data storage and data access are developed and maintained as independent modules, most often on separate platforms.
Apart from the usual advantages of modular software with well defined interfaces, the three-tier architecture is intended to allow any of the three tiers to be upgraded or replaced independently as requirements or technology change.

 Lenny Zeltser - Firewall Deployment for Multitier Applications
Multitier architecture of the application allows you to design the network in a way that mirrors the grouping of the application's components so that you can segment resources based on their exposure sensitivity and the likelihood that they can be compromised.
You may elect to use this architecture if the expense of deploying and maintaining multiple firewalls is not warranted by the risk of hosting servers on the same subnet.
Juxtapose this design against the architecture of a multitiered application in Figure 1, and you will see that it closely mirrors the roles and requirements of the application's components, and allows a fine-grained control over access to servers in each tier.

 Multitier architecture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In software engineering, multi-tier architecture (often referred to as n-tier architecture) is a client-server architecture in which an application is executed by more than one distinct software agent.
For example, an application that uses middleware to service data requests between a user and a database employs multi-tier architecture.
The most widespread use of "multi-tier architecture" refers to three-tier architecture.

 COM+ Overview for Microsoft Visual Basic Programmers (COM+ Technical Articles)
One of the greatest strengths of a multitier architecture is that it hides the complexity of a company's evolving IT infrastructure from client applications.
Microsoft’s entire multitier strategy is based on the assumption that companies would rather have someone else create the generic yet critical pieces of a framework for distributed applications.
Some multitier applications require that certain users or applications receive notifications of interesting events—such as the hiring of a new employee, a change in a stock price, or a drop in inventory level that requires restocking.

 Database Connectivity in WebLogic
This paper reviews DBMS client-server architecture, introduces the multitier concept, and explains how WebLogic's JDBC is ideally suited for creating data-oriented or multitier applications for both intranet and Internet applications, particularly on the World Wide Web.
Multitier architecture (sometimes called three-tier) extends the standard client-server architecture (also known as two-tier) by placing a multithreaded application server between the client and the DBMS.
Second, in the multitier configuration, the WebLogic Server maintains a connection to the DBMS on behalf on a Java WebLogic Client.

 Client-server architecture: What's the ideal strategy?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Client-server architectures exist to provide organizations flexible and robust infrastructures that, depending on how they are designed, can cater to specific business needs.
The recent e-business endeavors have brought the client-server/Web-server architecture to light and have sparked much debate as to whether it is more beneficial to run applications on the server side or client side.
Client-side architecture also suggests that as applications become more demanding and complex, the client needs to take a larger portion of the processing burden away from the server.

 Multitier Architecture for High Performance Data Mining   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Since they want to derive patterns from all of their data, the architecture should not limit the size of data sets that can be handled, for example to main memory capacity.
The most obvious drawback of the one-tier architecture is the size of the data set that can be mined and the speed of the mining process.
In a two-tier architecture the data mining tool completely resides on the client but there is no need to copy data to it in advance.

 IT Management: Enterprise Applications
Developers are starting to use new client/server development tools, distributed-object architectures, and new data and process-messaging and middleware technologies to shoot that digital curtain protecting the data from the app full of holes.
In this emerging multitiered world, developers can build complex client/server apps based purely on business process, business needs, and end users' requirements as if they'll be running on a single unified computer with a single memory space and worry about how to partition the "single" application into its logical layers later.
That means using a logical architecture and settling on its layered structure as late as possible in the process.

 Introduction
With the client-server architecture, however, clients use server-specific, client-side APIs to access a server, and each API provides access to a single category of services, such as database or messaging.
In spite of its advantages, the client-server architecture still produces client-side applications that are large, complex, platform- and vendor-specific, and difficult to deploy and maintain.
A multitier architecture based on open standards preserves the advantages of the client-server architecture while simplifying the complexity by adding an additional tier between clients and the services they access.

 Essential Multitier J2EE Design Patterns   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The J2EE platform is fundamentally a multitiered, distributed application model where application logic is divided into components according to function.
However, if you aren't careful with J2EE or any multitier architecture, you can end up with a system that is many times slower than a two-tier system.
Multitier designs have more components to keep track of, and the success of many multitier projects hinges on divvying up tasks into appropriate components and properly organizing the results.

Most existing meta data repository architectures are based on a two-tier client/server foundation, such that the repository runs on a database server, which in turn is accessed by a number of client applications.
With the rapid emergence and adoption of Web-based applications, such as those used for electronic commerce, a component-based multitier architecture is an important requirement for an advanced meta data repository.
Given that most enterprises deploy multiple tools in their data warehousing and decision support environments, it is important for them to be able to track the meta data dependencies and lineage across the various tools.

One goal of the architecture is dynamic development within a direct manipulation GUI environment through drag and drop and linking operations.
For example, a database application in a multitier architecture might include a thin client applet that supports only data display and input (including user commands), a Web server to which the client connects, and a separate database engine to which the server connects.
Another goal of the EJB architecture is to remove common distributed application functions -- such as transaction processing, access control, and security -- from the application.
