What is a backup client
The "backup client" is commanly used in a client-server architecture, and generally refers to the end user’s computer or server containing the data to be backed up.
When performing Windows client backup, the backup clients could be multiple Windows computers and servers on the network. They are controlled by the central server and receive commands from it, thus you can easily create and manage backup tasks of all the clients from the server-side.
