C-Stack Series: What are Servers?

What are servers? Enterprise servers are the beating heart of your organization, 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?

Webopedia simply defines servers as, “A computer or device on a network that manages network resources.” Servers within in the 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

What are servers in the grand scale of how an enterprise infrastructure runs? WhatIs.com says, “An enterprise server is a computer containing programs that collectively serve the needs of an enterprise rather than a single user, department, or specialized application.”

In short: 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.
