Servers come in all different types and some can run more than one of the features below:
A proxy server sits between a client program (typically a Web browser) and an external server (typically another server on the Web) to filter requests, improve performance, and share connections. Mail Server Almost as ubiquitous and crucial as Web servers, mail servers move and store mail over corporate networks (via LAN’s and WAN’s) and across the Internet.
At its core, a Web server serves static content to a Web browser by loading a file from a disk and serving it across the network to a user’s Web browser. This entire exchange is mediated by the browser and server talking to each other using HTTP.
Sometimes referred to as a type of middleware, application servers occupy a large chunk of computing territory between database servers and the end-user, and they often connect the two.
Real-Time Communication Server
Real-time communication servers, formerly known as chat servers or IRC Servers, and still sometimes referred to as instant messaging (IM) servers, enable large numbers of users to exchange information near instantaneously.
One of the oldest of the Internet services, File Transfer Protocol makes it possible to move one or more files securely between computers while providing file security and organization as well as transfer control.
In many ways, collaboration software, once called ‘groupware,’ demonstrates the original power of the Web. Collaboration software designed to enable users to collaborate, regardless of location, via the Internet or a corporate intranet and to work together in a virtual atmosphere.
List servers offer a way to better manage mailing lists, whether they be interactive discussions open to the public or one-way lists that deliver announcements, newsletters or advertising.
A Telnet server enables users to log on to a host computer and perform tasks as if they’re working on the remote computer itself.
Open Source Server
From your underlying open-source server operating system to the server software that helps you get your job done, open-source software is a critical part of many IT infrastructures.
