What is the essence of server?
The server is not just a powerful dedicated computer. The server differs from a it in two main ways. The first is the hardware of the server. Server hardware is certainly created more reliable and more productive. It has special technological properties, such as memory with parity, RAID controllers, special processor series, support for virtualization operations. All this not only makes the server fast, reliable and fault-tolerant, but also affects the cost of the server.
The second difference is that a special server operating system is installed on the server, supporting the functions necessary for modern systems – Active Directory, network services, virtualization, terminal access and so on.
These features require the administrator, who serves the server, higher qualifications and fundamental knowledge in the field of network technologies.
