“Server,” What is it?

What is a Server - R&R Episode 31

It’s easy to picture a computer in your mind, but what is a server? In this episode of R&R, we discuss different types of servers and what they can do.

What is a Server?

Start with a program that is meant to do a specific task. Then add the hardware that is built to help run that program. Maybe it has more computing power or perhaps it has more file storage, or some other important specification. But that whole bundle, the program and the hardware, is together, considered “A Server.”

Some common types of Servers include Application, Communication, Database, Domain, and File.
