disk server

A disk server is a server in a local network that allows all authorized users of the network to access the storage units. Disk servers usually have multiple hard disk drives and a connection to the network. A mainframe becomes a disk server for PCs if the personal computer uses the hard dis ks of the mainframe as virtual hard disks.
