When I heard the word server, it brought to mind a waiter or waitress, who graciously take our orders in a restaurant and deliver them to the kitchen staff. These same servers then bring the prepared meal to our tables. Also, in the Biblical sense, I thought of a server as one who denied himself and put others first to serve or aid in their needs.
In the Technological world, a server is automated but still carries orders from one computer to another computer or computers in a network. The requested data from the server comes back to the original computer. There are many technological expressions. We hear words and names in relationship to our computers. To Technologically minded people, the terms used are second nature. In this creative world of Technology, we newbies do not always understand their phraseology. We hear computer terms but do not delve into the how and why of each one. We know our computers respond to what we ask, and that serves us well.
I have heard the word server related to computers and (without total clarity) had an understanding of what it meant. Hearing Compumatrix is incorporating a new satellite-driven server; I wanted to understand the primary functions.
Let’s focus on what is a server? Small Servers can be your computer, a cloud etc., used mainly to house or store your personal data.
- A server can be a dedicated server; A large company (client) or a growing company may implement a server just for their primary business usage.
- A server can have multiple small companies or groups as users (clients), many clients using the same server.
- A server supplies storage: (holds all the data and files used for private or business functions.)
- A server can have a single function like:
File servers. 5.A server must have one or all these components to operate with efficiency according to its purpose:
Ram – Random Access Memory
CPU – Central Processing Chip
HTTP -The language or protocol used by browsers and Web servers to talk to each other
Many components go into building a server. Some essential parts are conducive to all servers. Still, additional features are needed for a companies specific process to operate their unique business. Large companies may use powerful based computers that store data and files and transmits (sends) the data (information) via the internet to other computers in their corporation. Thus all associated with the company have access to needed data. We process data according to the required function and return results to the server, thus keeping all business members in sync. The servers are a critical part of a business today as they must keep the computers up and running. A multifunctional server is most helpful in maintaining the smooth-running of its computers; 1. By encrypting data for privacy and protection over its complete ecosystem. 2.Offers flexibility to adapt and evolve as the company grows. 3.It also provides seamless processing from the central computer to all those associated with the company.
As a rapidly growing Company, Compumatrix has implemented a server for use now and have the ability to incorporate future discoveries. We are blessed to be associated with a futuristic company. Compumatrix Networks International is a cryptocurrency, multifunctioning income-generating company in a class by itself.
