Definition - What does Development Server mean?

It provides a run-time environment, as well as all hardware/software utilities that are essential to program debugging and development.

Techopedia explains Development Server

A development server is the core tier in a software development environment, where software developers test code directly. It is comprised of the essential hardware, software and other components used to deploy and test the software under development, including bulk storage, development platform tools and utilities, network access and a high-end processor. Upon testing completion, the application is moved either to a staging server or production/live server.
