Data Servers

What Does Data Server (DS) Mean?

A data server (DS) is a software program/platform used to provide database services like storing, processing and securing data.


These database services are consumed by other software programs or components.


Sometimes the computer hardware, where the database is running, is also referred to as a database server.


Therefore, the data server can be seen as the combination of software and hardware platform that runs the installed database and provides relevant services.

Upgrading your business files over to a data server can protect you from future catastrophes. 

94% of companies suffering from a catastrophic data loss do not survive – 43% never reopen, and 51% close within two years.
