A server stores, sends, and receives data. In essence, it “serves” something else and exists to provide services. A computer, software program, or even a storage device may act as a server, and it may provide one service or several. If a server does just one thing for one client, it’s considered a dedicated server. There are entire rooms or buildings that house servers. Companies will often have server a room that is kept cool by large fans and A/C units so the servers don’t overheat. Because server rooms and buildings house such large amounts of valuable data, they’re typically secure locations with limited access for only those employees who need to use them.
A unified server for centralized computation allows you to simplify your computational hardware into a singular point, giving you an ease of use and monitoring.
The flexibility of splitting server resources gives you the efficiency to use either only the compute power you need, or to redirect more resources to compute heavy tasks only when you need it.
The smart and efficient allocation of compute resources from a single server allows you to remove wasteful overhead of running individual instances of workstations.
