DIfference Between Peer to Peer and Server based networking

Peer-to-peer networking
          Designed for ten or less workstations
          Only moderate network security
        Users manage their own account information.
          No centralized storage of information
          No centralized administration control
        Lack of management for users and critical files
        Inability to centrally back up important files
          Slower response times when sharing resources
Server-based Networking
          Users log in once to access resources.
          Stronger security because of server management
          Shared files by members
          Shared printers and other resources
          E-mail capability through an email server
          Applications stored in a central location
          Backups scheduled and performed from a central location
          Shared resources can reflect the work patterns of subgroups.
          More efficient software upgrades
