Exchange servers : webmail
file servers : file repositories
web servers : web application and sites
database servers : used to house databases such as Oracle, MS SQL Server

but one server (computer, machine, virtual machine) can serve as any and many of those

FileServer:Stores network users' data files

Database server:Manages common databases for the network, handling all data storage, database management and requests for data

Webservers:The web server is responsible for hosting website files and serve it up through a web browser. It loads an individual file of a web page and loads it to display in the browser as one complete page

Exchange server:Is a mailserver. its runs exclusively on windows operating systems

A server is a powerful system which provide the resources, information or services to the other computer over the network. you can find different types of server like:

File servers: user can share, distribute or store the file on a server
Print servers: user can used for the management and distribution of printing functionality
Application servers: client computers running applications locally
Web servers: special type of server that hosts programs and data requested by users across the Internet

I'm a bit confused about memory usage, and for some reason I wasn't able to find a single point-of-call to get the amount of memory available.

I'm trying to store a sequence of operations and values of different types into a single array. It's a sequence of command word bytes, and a sequence of one or more values (as determined by the command word) which might be int or double or char (again defined by the command word). For example, a command byte "MULDBL" would be followed by 2 doubles (each 8 bytes each). This might be followed by the command byte STRING would be followed by a...

I'm sure this is not a new idea, but I have never heard about it before. I'm wondering if this could work: Assume that you have a common base class and a bunch of classes derived from it, and you want to make a deque which can contain any objects of any of those types. Normally what you would have to do is to make a deque or vector of pointers of the base class type and then allocate each object dynamically with 'new' and store the...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
