Transparency Market Research Report Added "Application Servers Market" to its database.


Albany, NY -- (SBWire) -- 03/20/2015 --An application server is a modern type of platform middleware, designed to run specific applications. In this case, an application server is generally used to run a massive application, which could be a company's network employing the entire RAM and ROM of one server. An application server is a system software that resides between the OS on one side, the external resources such as DMS and communications on the second side, and the user's application on the third side.

Application servers: Managing operations and processes

Application servers function as a host for the user's business logic while allowing access to and performance of the business application. This type of server functions in spite of the variable and competing traffic of client requests, distributed nature of large-scale applications, and software and hardware failures. Application servers manage all these operations and processes between the users and backend applications. They are used primarily for mobile devices and cloud-based applications.

An application server is also used to support multiple application design patterns as per the nature of the application and the industry practices for which the application has been created. Typically, it is used to provide support to deployment platforms and multiple programming languages. However, most application servers have a particular affinity towards one or two of these functions.
