Linux Server

A Linux server is a high-powered variant of the Linux open source operating system that’s designed to handle the more demanding needs of business applications such as network and system administration, database management and Web services.

Linux servers are frequently selected over other server operating systems for their stability, security and flexibility advantages. Leading Linux server operating systems include CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu Server, Slackware and Gentoo.
