Computer Server FAQs

Get answers to frequently asked questions about computer servers from Continental Computer Services

What is a Server?

A  server is a computer or server computer program that provides services - "serves" - other computers or computer programs.  It works for your business behind the scenes, storing, managing, sending or otherwise processing data. Your server will  process data, not only during working hours, but throughout the day and night.
The right type of computer server can streamline or speed up your business processes, make your business more efficient, or improve the safety and security of your files.

Does My Business Need a Server?

As a general rule, most businesses of 5 or more employees will run more efficiently with a server to manage their network operations. 

A  network of 5 or more stations without a server puts your business at risk for security threats, limited resource sharing, down time and data loss.

 With a server, you get 

  • Enhanced file security, increased reliability, and easily shared resources.  
  • Centralized data storage so back up of data is easier to handle -- and less likely to be be forgotten. 
  • Virus protection that is easier to provide, update, and monitor on a server than it would be on many different stand alone stations.

Servers make for fewer interruptions in work - redundant systems like back up power supply options and multiple hard drives can make it easy to get back on line quickly in case of a problem - and easy to replace faulty hardware without impacting your whole system.

What Kind of Server Do I Need?

The right kind of server depends on many factors - size of your business, number of stations involved, what you are trying to accomplish, volume of mail or files or data, even the level of security you want to maintain. 

Types of Servers

  • File Server - a file server is a storage device dedicated to storing files
  • Print Server - your print server manages printers, allowing multiple offices to use one printer or allowing one computer to select from various printers to handle the specific print job
  • Data Base Server - a database server processes data base queries
  • Web Server - a web server delivers web pages to the internet based on URLs
  • Email Server - your email server manages your email business wide.  
  • Network Server
  • Exchange Server The computer server tech team assigned to your business can help you make an informed decision about the right server for your particular applications.  Use the contact form to request a free walk through to get the process started.

 

What Server Categories Should I Know About?

  Servers are categorized by their size and application -

  • Home users and very small businesses may run a micro server or home server – an off the shelf server advertised as easy to install and maintain - brands like HP, NetGear, QNap, Seagate, and Synolog
  • Many businesses find a Network Attached Strategy or NAS, Tower, Rack, or Blade system better suited to their needs.  Brands might include Dell, Fujitso, HP, IBM, Lenovo and Oracle.
  • Windows Servers are a favorite with all size businesses.  Microsoft Windows Server applications include
  • Microsoft Windows 2016
  • Windows Server 2012 (including Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Foundation, Windows Server 2012 Standard, Windows Server 2012 Data Center, and Windows Server 2012 Essentials)
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008,  a stand alone operating system, is typically recommended for use on servers rather than home desktops.
  • Microsoft Small business server (SBS) is an all in one server typically used by small businesses with up to 75 users.  The SBS handles email, threat management, connections to the internet, sharing files and printers, data backup, and user access management

Can I Use an Existing Computer As a Server?

Most computers can be configured to run a server operating system.  

However, when you configure a computer to run a server operation, you may sacrifice efficiency or run into unexpected problems.

A desktop is designed to handle your many desktop related tasks - word processing, local file management, email creation, shared calendars, spreadsheets and desktop publishing.  

The desktop is required to handle many different tasks in a user friendly way.  It is not an "expert" at being a server. 

A server is designed just for its one task - it is very good at that one task and does nothing else.  (With "virtualization" multiple server applications can run on one piece of server hardware, eliminating the need for multiple pieces of server equipment.  Ask us if Virtualization can save you space and dollars.)
