    • What is a SERVER?
    • Servers are the one that is responsible to provide response to each client’s request simultaneously.
    • A Server may be responsible to process a single request or more than one request at a time.
  • 4. Types of Servers
    • File Servers
    • Print Servers
    • E-mail Servers
    • Data Base Servers
  • 5. File Servers
    • A file server may be dedicated or non-dedicated.
    • A dedicated server is designed specifically for use as a file server not for other database purposes.
    • 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).
  • 6. File Servers
    • 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.
    • A file server is not intended to perform computational tasks, and does not run programs on behalf of its clients.
  • 7. File Servers
    • It is designed primarily to enable the storage and retrieval of data while the computation is carried out by the workstations.
    • File servers are commonly found in schools and offices and rarely seen in local internet service providers using LAN to connect their client computers.
  • 8. File Servers Each Server will be placed on one another on a rack mount.
  • 9. File Servers
  • 10. File Servers
    • Minimum Hardware requirements for FILE SERVERS
    •  Memory
    • RAM 4 GB for developer evaluation use.
    • 8 GB for production use.
  • 11. File Servers
    • Storage
      • 80 GB or greater for system drive.
      • You must have sufficient space for the base installation and sufficient space for diagnostics such as logging, debugging, creating memory dumps, and so on.
  • 12. File Servers
    •  Processors
      • 64-bit, four cores for small deployments.
      • 64-bit, eight cores for medium deployments.
  • 13. File Servers
    • Operating System Used in Server sites
    • Windows Server 2003
    • Windows Server 2008
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
    • Windows NT
    • Ubuntu Server Edition
    • Linux
    • Novel Netware
    • Mac OS 8 and so on….
  • 14. Print Servers
    • 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.
    • Print server functionality may be integrated with other devices such as a wireless router, a firewall, or both.
  • 15. Print Servers
    • A printer may have a built-in print server .
    • 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.).
  • 16. Print Servers
    • Possible to have more than one Printers.
    • If more than one Client’s want to process a same printer, than print Request are queued.
  • 17. E-Mail Servers
  • 18. E-Mail Servers
    • Often referred to as simply "mail server", an e-mail server is a computer within your network that works as your virtual post office.
    • 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.
  • 19. E-Mail Servers
    • 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.
    • Generally the person(s) responsible for the maintenance of the e-mail server (editing users, monitoring system activity) are referred to as the postmaster.
  • 20. Database Server
    • A database server is a computer program that provides database services to other computer programs or computers.
    • 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.
  • 21. Database Servers
    • 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.
    • Some examples of Database servers are Oracle, DB2, Informix, Ingres, SQL Server. Every server uses its own query logic and structure.
  • 22. Database Servers
    • Such a server is accessed either through a "front end“ at the "back end" which runs on the server and handles tasks such as data analysis and storage.
    • The back-end, sometimes called a database server , performs tasks such as data analysis, storage, data manipulation, archiving, and other non-user specific tasks.
  • 23. Database Servers
    • The Diagram represents that two clients system can access the SQL Database of the “ Techfuels” organization.
    • Possible to use any type of Database Software.
