Servers are often a crucial aspect to a successful and efficient business information system

Server Basics 

What's a Server

A server is a computer application which accepts requests from another computer and gives responses based on those requests.  A server may reside on any computer, although, it is common that it resides on a dedicated computer. Dedicated to running only the server application. In any event, Servers often require IT services.

Server Functions

How does a Server work?

A server allows access to files from another computer. Such that multiple computers can access one set of files simultaneously. Files such as documents, databases, images, videos or other file types. Traditionally, a server would need to be in close proximity to the computer accessing it. More recently, servers have moved from server rooms to the internet with the growth of hosted environments, virtual servers and cloud based services. Information formally stored on a physical server in a nearby room is now located offsite, accessible through the internet.

Common Types of Servers

Server Maintenance

Server Maintenance and Support

Like most computer equipment, a server, from time to time, will need IT Support. Servers are high functioning devices potentially performing many operations in one day, and thus will likely require servicing. Often due to server hangs and freezes, addressing and routing errors and for other reasons.

Server Benefits

Benefits of using a Server

Data may be gone forever when a computer becomes corrupted, broken or stolen. Additionally, as staff turns over, data becomes lost. This is common with the use of laptops and tablets. If business information is saved on a server, it protects the business against risk of data loss. Servers help business manage information by holding information in a place which is accessible to many users. Servers benefit business by consolidating the business information of multiple individuals in a safe a secure location.

Hosted Environment?

A hosted environment is a physical facility, otherwise known as data centre, where a third-party, the data centre, stores your data. Similarly, the third-party will also run each program. This is the same concept as the cloud but operated from a physical location instead of from the internet.

Aside from saving data to it,  programs and applications are operated from it. These include programs like Quickbooks, anti-virus software, Microsoft office, a website or email program. Programs and applications for business accessed from a hosted environment are abundant and from time to time require IT services. Instead of your programs and data residing on a server in an office, they reside on a server in a remote location.

Benefits of a Hosted or Cloud Environment

Many businesses are choosing to relocate their data, applications, programs,  telecommunications and computing to a hosted environment for a multitude of reasons:

  • reduced costs
  • reduced infrastructure
  • reduced virus removal
  • firewall management
  • powerful mail hosting
  • reduced maintenance
  • increased security
  • climate controlled environment (hosted)
  • reliable, monitored and highly secure
  • customization
  • access to latest technologies
  • scalability, add users efficiently as business grows
