  3. 3. Servers <ul><li>What is a SERVER? </li></ul><ul><li>Servers are the one that is responsible to provide response to each client’s request simultaneously. </li></ul><ul><li>A Server may be responsible to process a single request or more than one request at a time. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Types of Servers <ul><li>File Servers </li></ul><ul><li>Print Servers </li></ul><ul><li>E-mail Servers </li></ul><ul><li>Data Base Servers </li></ul>
  5. 5. File Servers <ul><li>A file server may be dedicated or non-dedicated. </li></ul><ul><li>A dedicated server is designed specifically for use as a file server not for other database purposes. </li></ul><ul><li>File servers may also be categorized by the method of access: Internet file servers are frequently accessed by F ile T ransfer P rotocol ( FTP ) or by HTTP (but are different from web servers, that often provide dynamic web content in addition to static files). </li></ul>
  6. 6. File Servers <ul><li>File server is a computer attached to a network, that has the primary purpose to share contents (such as documents, sound files, photographs, movies, images, databases , etc.) that can be accessed by the other computers that are attached to the network. </li></ul><ul><li>A file server is not intended to perform computational tasks, and does not run programs on behalf of its clients. </li></ul>
  7. 7. File Servers <ul><li>It is designed primarily to enable the storage and retrieval of data while the computation is carried out by the workstations. </li></ul><ul><li>File servers are commonly found in schools and offices and rarely seen in local internet service providers using LAN to connect their client computers. </li></ul>
  8. 8. File Servers Each Server will be placed on one another on a rack mount.
  9. 9. File Servers
  10. 10. File Servers <ul><li>Minimum Hardware requirements for FILE SERVERS </li></ul><ul><li> Memory </li></ul><ul><li>RAM 4 GB for developer evaluation use. </li></ul><ul><li>8 GB for production use. </li></ul>
  11. 11. File Servers <ul><li>Storage </li></ul><ul><ul><li>80 GB or greater for system drive. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You must have sufficient space for the base installation and sufficient space for diagnostics such as logging, debugging, creating memory dumps, and so on. </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. File Servers <ul><li> Processors </li></ul><ul><ul><li>64-bit, four cores for small deployments. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>64-bit, eight cores for medium deployments. </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. File Servers <ul><li>Operating System Used in Server sites </li></ul><ul><li>Windows Server 2003 </li></ul><ul><li>Windows Server 2008 </li></ul><ul><li>Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 </li></ul><ul><li>Windows NT </li></ul><ul><li>Ubuntu Server Edition </li></ul><ul><li>Linux </li></ul><ul><li>Novel Netware </li></ul><ul><li>Mac OS 8 and so on…. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Print Servers <ul><li>A print server may be a networked computer with one or more shared printers. Alternatively a print server may be a dedicated device on the network, with connections to the LAN and one or more printers. </li></ul><ul><li>Print server functionality may be integrated with other devices such as a wireless router, a firewall, or both. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Print Servers <ul><li>A printer may have a built-in print server . </li></ul><ul><li>All printers with the right type of connector are compatible with all print servers; manufacturers of servers make available lists of compatible printers because a server may not implement all the communications functionality of a printer (low ink signal, etc.). </li></ul>
  16. 16. Print Servers <ul><li>Possible to have more than one Printers. </li></ul><ul><li>If more than one Client’s want to process a same printer, than print Request are queued. </li></ul>
  17. 17. E-Mail Servers
  18. 18. E-Mail Servers <ul><li>Often referred to as simply &quot;mail server&quot;, an e-mail server is a computer within your network that works as your virtual post office. </li></ul><ul><li>A mail server usually consists of a storage area where e-mail is stored for local users, a set of user definable rules which determine how the mail server should react to the destination of a specific message. </li></ul>
  19. 19. E-Mail Servers <ul><li>A database of user accounts that the mail server recognizes and will deal with locally. This means each users will be stored in particular Email Providers Database. Ex: Yahoo, Gmail, Rediff, Hot mail. </li></ul><ul><li>Generally the person(s) responsible for the maintenance of the e-mail server (editing users, monitoring system activity) are referred to as the postmaster. </li></ul>
  20. 20. Database Server <ul><li>A database server is a computer program that provides database services to other computer programs or computers. </li></ul><ul><li>Database management systems frequently provide database server functionality, and some DBMS’s (e.g., My SQL) rely exclusively on the client–server model for database access. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Database Servers <ul><li>In a master-slave model, database master servers are centralized and primary locations of data while database slave servers are synchronized backups of the master acting as proxies. </li></ul><ul><li>Some examples of Database servers are Oracle, DB2, Informix, Ingres, SQL Server. Every server uses its own query logic and structure. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Database Servers <ul><li>Such a server is accessed either through a &quot;front end“ at the &quot;back end&quot; which runs on the server and handles tasks such as data analysis and storage. </li></ul><ul><li>The back-end, sometimes called a database server , performs tasks such as data analysis, storage, data manipulation, archiving, and other non-user specific tasks. </li></ul>
  23. 23. Database Servers <ul><li>The Diagram represents that two clients system can access the SQL Database of the “ Techfuels” organization. </li></ul><ul><li>Possible to use any type of Database Software. </li></ul>
