Definition - What does Server Software mean?

Server software is a type of software that is designed to be used, operated and managed on a computing server. It provides and facilitates the harnessing of underlying server computing power for use with an array of high-end computing services and functions.

Techopedia explains Server Software

Server software is primarily built to interact with a server’s hardware infrastructure, including the processor, memory, storage, input/output (I/O) and other communication ports. Depending on the type or usage of the server, server software may be classified into various forms, such as the following:

  • Web server software
  • Application server software
  • Database server software
  • Cloud computing server software
  • File server software
Each of the above types of server software utilizes the server for different functions and services, but all focus their primary objective on using inherent computer capacity and resources. Moreover, server software may be for a physical or virtual/cloud server built on a physical server.
