In this paper I am supposed to describe the differences between a server, and a workstation. I will provide a few comparisons that will be able to show you these differences. While looking into these comparisons, I have realized there are not too many similarities of the two. So the following is the information that I have found while looking the information up about servers, and workstations.
Let’s start with ...view middle of the document...
A server is designed particularly for networking. While, a workstation is a computer that is being used to power applications such as graphic art, video editing, or other CPU/RAM software. These are two completely different definitions.
Moving onto the functions and operating systems of these two categories the only similarity you will see in both is Linux. Besides that they are different. The server has the functions of Internet, Office, Education, and Home networks. The workstation has functions of, business, Design, Engineering, and Multi-Media Production. With the Operating systems the server side has Free BSD, Solaris, Linux, and Windows server. On the other side with the Workstation it is Unix, Linux, and Windows workstation.
Looking at the information provided, does show that there are definite differences between the two. They should not be comparable on to many levels at all. Out of everything provided there was only one similarity. That leaves me with, after looking at the information, that both are devices that are needed, but not comparable in any real way.
