What is teh difference between Array and Table?

I cannot understand the difference between Array command and Table. I can reproduce the example in Array help in MMA with Table:

Array[1 + #^2 &, 10]
Table[1 + j^2, {j, 1, 10}]


Array[f, {2, 3}, {0, 4}] // MatrixForm
Table[f[i, j], {i, 0, 1}, {j, 4, 6}] // MatrixForm

Array[f, 10, {0, 1}]
Table[f[i/9], {i, 0, 9}]

Are they the same exactly with the exception that Table Is better?! At least it can be parallelized. What is the advantage of Array over Table? If they are the same I cannot get it why there is more than one way to do the same thing in MMA.
