•A server is a computer program that provides services to other computer programs (and their users) in the same or other computers. The computer that a server program runs in is also frequently referred to as a server. That machine may be a dedicated server or used for other purposes as well.
•In the client/server architecture, a server program awaits and fulfills requests from client programs, which may be running in the same or other computers.
•A Web server, for example, is a computer program that serves requested HTML pages or files. A Web client is the requesting program associated with the user. The Web browser in your computer is a client that requests HTML files from Web servers.
Servers are often categorized in terms of their purpose. Here are a few types of servers, among a great number of other possibilities:
•An application server is a program in a computer in a distributed network that provides the business logic for an application program.
•A proxy server is software that acts as an intermediary between an endpoint device, such as a computer, and another server from which a user or client is requesting a service.
•A mail server is an application that receives incoming forwards outgoing e-mail for delivery.
•A virtual server is a program running on a shared server that is configured in such a way that it seems to each user that they have complete control of a server.
•A blade server is a server chassis housing multiple thin, modular electronic circuit boards, known as server blades. Each blade is a server in its own right, often dedicated to a single application. Blade servers allow more processing power in less rack space, simplifying cabling and reducing power consumption.
•A file server is a computer responsible for the central storage and management of data files so that other computers on the same network can access them.
