5 SAP R/3 System Architecture
R/3 evolved from SAP’s original SAP R/2 system, which is based on a mainframe. R/3 architecture allows for the distribution of the workload to multiple PCs linked together through a network. The R/3 system architecture contains the database servers, application servers, and presentation systems. The database server is the place where the data is stored. The application server is responsible for the administrative functions of the system: background processing, printing (spool requests), and process request management. The presentation systems, or clients, display the software and screens that you will use when working with SAP.
