Some advantages or running a server are

  • Centralised Print Management
  • Username and Password control
  • Centralised Backup
  • Control of workstations, for example with Microsoft Active Directory and Group Policy
  • Servers usually have better redundancy, for example hot swap hard drives and fail over network cards
  • Server software, for example Microsoft Exchange and SQL Server can only be run on servers.

Not all server services need a server, for example MySQL can be run on a WindowsXP computer without restriction, whereas Microsft Exchange will only run on a server.
