    Ok that’s good. i knows very well about server. according to me benefits of server are..Lower number of physical servers – you can reduce hardware maintenance costs because of a lower number of physical servers..By implementing a server consolidation strategy, you can increase the space utilization efficiency in your data center..By having each application within its own “virtual server” you can prevent one application from impacting another application when upgrades or changes are made..You can develop a standard virtual server build that can be easily duplicated which will speed up server deployment.You can deploy multiple operating system technologies on a single hardware platform means Windows Server 2003, Linux, Windows 2000, etc..
