What is Server Farm?

A server farm also connoted as server cluster/ranch/computer farm is a network of multiple computer servers that helps in streamlining the overall workload. It disseminates the workload to multiple servers in the same network, ensuring centralized access, easy data sharing and backup. Technically, in a server farm – computers, switches, routers, and other imperative IT components are mounted on a 19-inch rack in a data center facility.

Server farms are based on load-balancing software that helps in accomplishing varying needs of a business. Here, load balancer helps in determining the requirement of computing power from different machines. Apart from this, it prioritizes the different tasks depending on the end-user demands and load on the network. Even if one of the servers in the farm fails, another server in the farm takes the charge. Put simply, these servers also acts as a backup server in case of primary server failure. In addition to this, these servers can have individual OS installed or a shared OS can be quickly set up to proffer load balancing to cater to the multiple sever requests.
