Servers are the backbone of a data center operation, and they are used mainly for the transfer of data over computer networks. A server operation is dependent on hardware reliability and durability. A typical server consists of dual-power supplies, redundant array of independent disks (RAID) disk systems, and error-correcting code (ECC) memory, which are tested for operations by vendors. There have been several innovations in the design and manufacturing of servers, depending on business requirements.
