Server room


Server room

A server room is a room that houses mainly computer servers. In information technology circles, the term is generally used for smaller arrangements of servers; larger groups of servers are housed in data centers. Server rooms usually contain headless computers connected remotely via KVM switch, ssh, VNC, or remote desktop. Some types of servers are the Mac OSX server (Xserve), Windows Server 200x, and others. These servers are used by schools and some companies to house user data for access by a network login or for critical data. Many server rooms also house internet routers and some sort of interface to directly interact with a server. Remote login for a server is usually through the form "server.domain.com" or "server@domain.com". [ [http://www.learnthat.com/define/view.asp?id=1996 Learnthat - server room Definition] ]
