What is a computer server, and why would your small business need one?

At the most basic level, a server is a technology solution that “serves” files, data, print, fax resources and more to multiple computers. Advanced server solutions, such as Microsoft Windows Server, also enable you to manage user accounts and passwords, grant or restrict access to shared resources, automatically back up your data and access business information remotely.

The word “server” often refers to the specialised computer (or piece of hardware) that the server software runs on. The server is optimised to perform services for other computers or “clients.” Clients can be computers as well as printers, faxes, or other devices that connect to the server.

What can your business do with a server?

With a server, you can share files and resources, such as fax machines and printers, in a more secure manner.
