Server for the flexible administration of data
A server is a computer with its own operating system and a large storage capacity. Servers manage large amounts of data. Different users get access, which the administrator manages individually. It grants authorizations for all data stored on the server. It is possible to grant a person universal access or to release individual files for retrieval. Many servers work with the Windows operating system. Alternatively, you can use the Apple Macintosh or Linux server software.
How can you access a server?
Access is via the network, which can be connected to the Internet or work internally. Alternatively, servers are integrated into the intranet. It is a network that all employees of a company can access. The server can be reached via its own network address. Data is accessed after entering a user name in combination with a password.
How do you choose a suitable server?
- Which operating system is the right choice for a server? Most models work with a current version of Windows Server. This operating system is compatible with many applications and is therefore highly recommended.
- How much memory should the server have? It depends on the amount of data you want to save on the server. If they are documents, four to six gigabytes should be available. For memory-hungry data such as photos, graphics or videos, hard disk sizes of ten gigabytes or more are recommended.
