What is a program running through a remote computer called?
Hi. I've built a few programs to run on arduinos/sensors. simple if this then that.
I want to move away from having the arduinos improperly perform tasks that can easily be done on a remote computer. Such as continually checking the price on a certain website and when the price is right perform a certain task all on its own, running 24/7 on some remote computer.
Is the remote computer and running softwares off of it called a dedicated server? Especially when no one else has access to it but its owner?
I'm trying to get the name of the concept so I can read more on it and build a program that would reside on a remote computer that runs 24/7. I have access to it but can't make use of it cause I don't know what to do.
