What is a Server?
A computer on a network that is dedicated to a particular purpose and which stores
all information and performs the critical functions for that purpose. For example, a Web server
would store all files related to a Web site and perform all work necessary for hosting the Web site.
Most congressional offices have at least one server that is dedicated as both a network server and a
file server. This means that, in it's network server role, the computer is responsible for holding
the files and managing the processes that enable everyone in the office to access and use the network.
In it's file server role, it holds the central computer files and the CMS database.
