Using a server means that data can be stored centrally and analyses run on a central machine rather than a personal computer. Please see the CLC Genomics Server section and the Biomedical Genomics Server section for a listing of tools shipped with CLC Servers.

After logging into the CLC Server from a Workbench, data on the server will be listed in the Workbench navigation area and analyses can be started as usual. The key difference is that when you are logged into a CLC Server from a Workbench, you will be get the choice of where to run the analysis: on the Workbench or on the CLC Server.
