A server is a specially designed computer system which can process requests and deliver data to other computers over a local network. Servers are typically conﬁgured with additional processing power, memory and storage capacity. Servers are designed to run 24/7 and oﬀer additional redundancy for data storage and power.

- A server is a dedicated piece of computer hardware which performs specific tasks for a number of networked users.
- In a nutshell, a server provides a safe place to store your documents, spreadsheets, files, data, accounting information and everything else that is critical to your business.
- Its safe because the information stored is copied / striped or mirrored onto other drives in real time, so that should a drive fail, the server can carry on without any loss of data. In addition, a daily backup is performed to either an online storage device, or tape or disk based media which is then removed from site, providing recovery of all your data in the event of a disaster.
- Servers also manage user security (user names, passwords and the files and directories they are permitted to access), updates to operating system software and anti virus packages, store and control email, and perform all the central tasks for all your business network users.
