Dedicated Secure Server
A dedicated server is a single system reserved for serving the needs of the network. As the name suggests, it is dedicated or set aside to manage work that requires additional help. It can also run separate from the complete operating system. It manages the communication of other computers on a network. An example of a dedicated server is managing the printer resources and system admin functions in an office or organised network.
When compared to the apartment scenario above, a dedicated server would be like the security post that monitors access and manages the security needs of the facility. This department is detached from the complete building and can operate independently.
