Database server is a computer program that offers database services to other computers or computer programs, as defined by the client-server model. Many times this term may also refer to a computer dedicated to running such a program. Usually, the Database management systems offer database server functionality, and some DBMS's (e.g., MySQL) are fully dependent on the client-server model for database access.
Database Master Servers hold the central positions and are the main locations of data while Database Slave servers are synchronized backups acting as proxies of the master.
The accretive importance of database servers is due to the quality of the client/server architecture model in computing. These servers store the database on the hard disc of a committed computer system and allowing it to maintain the integrity of the data along with managing transaction support as well as user.
