An enterprise server is a computer server that includes programs required to collectively serve the requirements of an enterprise instead of an individual user, unit or specific application. Traditionally, mainframe-sized computer systems were used as enterprise servers, although they weren't initially referred to as such. Due to their ability to manage enterprise-wide programs, UNIX-based servers as well as Wintel computers are also generally labeled enterprise servers. Some examples of enterprise servers include Sun Microsystems' servers with Linux or UNIX-based Solaris systems, IBM iSeries systems, Hewlett-Packard (HP) systems, and so on.
