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

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
