Information is being exchanged at rapid rates in modern times. With the increase in the amount of information that is being pitched by a machine to the other is high. The rapid interchange of has resulted in the need for a medium that helps in the smooth transit of the same. The medium that is between the different machines that are exchanging information are known as servers. Servers were previously instated in the form of big computer systems that would help in act as the medium between the different of information that is being exchanged at a high frequency and in high volumes. The servers of the modern era can be in the shape and size of small shoe boxes and yet they have the ability to perform higher amount of operations at the same time that older machines could not have performed before. Previously there used to be one or two servers that would serve the purpose of mitigation of information of a certain area. However, in the modern age, servers are dynamic and have become lot cheaper. As a result of this, there are various companies that maintain their persona servers. Multinational companies have an assimilation of servers in there IT department that has all the information. The servers also act as a medium for storage of the information that is being interchanged by the people at unprecedented speeds. The aim of the companies catering to the information of a large scale maintain servers that can take up a huge volume. The companies that are bigger in size that is companies such as big multinational companies use servers that are protected with server protection protocols. This is crucial I order to ensure that the material or information that re being interchanged are safe and being protected at all cost. Loss of information at such a big scale can of huge loss to companies and can determine the effectiveness of the downfall of a company. Hence, it is the role the server protection protocols to ensure that the servers are intact and out of the preying eyes of hackers who might be lurking over the servers in search of information that can harm the sustainability ad existence of the company. Big examination boards use server protection protocols to protect the information that they cannot leak at any cost. Such information can be question papers of examinations and such similar sensitive information.
There are various types of servers that exists. They are FTP servers, Web servers, gaming servers and application servers. Furthermore, with the development and progression of digitalisation, there are various servers such as IRC and list servers.
The stages of functioning of servers are simple. The client of the random sender of information sends information into computer of smartphone from which the information or the input is sent directly to the database server through the application servers. The Database server then communicates with the main database or server with the help of an SQL query. The same information is sent back through the database server, then to the application server after which the client or the sender of information receives the output in the form of a response from the database. Similar process are followed companies are being sent to through popular messaging applications such as i-message, Whatsapp and others. What might look like a simple technology has some of the most complex processes that are followed when even a simple hi or hello is being exchanged between two people. Hence, on a concluding note it can be said that servers are of great importance and without the same information management would not have been that effective.
