C-Stack Series: What is a Server?

What is a Computer Server?

Servers are the beating heart of your organization. It is the central device that manages resources across your entire network. A dedicated server is a computer configured with specific software, processing, memory, and storage capacities to handle all of the network resources throughout your infrastructure.

What Do Enterprise Servers Do?

Every business has different needs and requires different technology to support those needs. You need to choose the right server with the scalability and manageability you need to reach your goals for business growth, which is where enterprise servers come in.

Servers within an enterprise are usually “dedicated,” meaning that they are responsible for a specific set of network resources, including:

  • File servers
  • Print servers
  • Database servers
  • Application servers
  • Virtual servers


These servers support the entire business, rather than one specific user (like your personal computer) or department.

What Makes the Servers in C-Stack Different?
