PortfolioCenter Three-Tier Network

Program Components

The PortfolioCenter program has three components:

  • Database: Holds stored data
  • Application: Processes data and report requests
  • User interface: Allows user to submit data and report requests and displays the results


In this configuration, the components are distributed across the computers like this:

  • Database Server: Holds the database and SQL Server components
  • Application Server/Power User Workstation: Holds the application and service
  • Workstation: holds the user interface
