You might know that your business has one, but many people end up asking what a server is, what it does and why they actually need one.
In its simplest form, a server is a computer that acts as a centralised data centre allowing different users on different machines to log into destinations which are not physically on their computer.
Think of it as the central hub which allows sharing of data through a network system. An example could be clicking into the Sales Department computer to check invoices against delivery, even though you are in a separate room on a separate computer.
Servers are connected to workstations through a network cable, which allows everyone to communicate and share data.
Intercomp stocks a variety of server solutions tailored to all business needs.
