  file server
     Hardware and software that together provide file-handling and
     storage functions for multiple users on a local area
     network.  The most common choices for file server software
     are Sun Microsystems' Network File System for Unix and
     Novell Netware for IBM PC compatibles.  There is also a
     version of NFS for PCs called PC-NFS.  Storing files on a
     file server saves having multiple copies stored on individual
     computers, thus economising on disk space and also makes
     administrating and updating the files easier.
