  1. 1. 1 Server typesServer types && DatabaseDatabase
  2. 2. 2 Server TypesServer Types  Application Servers – also known as Middleware handles all application operations between users and a database  Audio/Video Servers –Enable Websites to broadcast streaming and multimedia content  Chat Servers – enable a large number of users to exchange information in an environment similar to Internet newsgroups that offer real-time discussion
  3. 3. 3 Server Types (cont.)Server Types (cont.) Database Servers – server that performs tasks such as data analysis and storage Fax Servers –Enables network to control incoming and outgoing telephone resources Groupware Servers – enables users to use the internet or intranet to collaborate regardless of location in a virtual atmosphere
  4. 4. 4 Server Types (cont.)Server Types (cont.) IRC Servers – Internet Relay Chat enables real-time discussion capabilities List Servers – offers a better way to manage mailing lists, whether they be interactive discussions open to the public or one-way lists that deliver announcements, newsletters, or advertising Mail Servers – move and store mail over corporate networks and across the Internet
