Linux server

What is a Linux Server?
A Linux server is a variant of the Linux operating system that is designed to handle more intense storage and operational needs of larger organizations and their software. Linux servers are widely used today and considered amongst the most popular due to their stability, security, and flexibility, which outstrip standard Windows servers.

Another major benefit of using Linux over closed-source software like Windows is that the former is fully open-source. This helps keeps setup and maintenance costs low, as even many of the proprietary variants of the standard Linux OS (such as Debian, CentOS, Ubuntu, and Red Hat) give users significant flexibility in terms of set up, operation, and maintenance their servers.

Additionally, Linux Servers are generally lighter to run on both physical and cloud servers because they don’t require a graphics interface.

Unlike Windows, most Linux variants are fully command-line based, making it a lightweight solution that prioritizes functionality and optimized performance over ease of use.

Other benefits of Linux server include the ability to maintain almost 100% uptime, since most servers don’t need to be taken offline to apply updates or correct errors. Linux is also excellent at managing multitasking, allowing it to handle multiple applications simultaneously.
