A lot of people think that a server is just like a PC desktop, which is a major misconception. PCs can carry a server operating system, but this often doesn’t operate the same way a server system does. The server is designed to monitor, store, submit information, and process data all the time. It works 24 hours a day and is highly stable compared to a laptop. There are a variety of features you will find on a server that will give you the best network for your company, including:

  1. Redundancy: This means that the information you want to store is stored in more than one place. Meaning if it’s ever going to go down for some reason you’ve put it in another place, so the information isn’t lost.
  2. Scalable: this means that you are able to meet current needs and also future needs.
  3. Dual Processor: This applies to a machine of two different processors. Instructions and knowledge are sent to both processors, enabling computers and networks to operate faster than a desktop PC.
  4. Hot-swappable components: The hot-swap component means that if your server has power loss, device failure or storage device failure for some reason, you can swap components while your computer system is still in service.
