Servers

A server is a computer program or a device that provides functionality for other programs or devices, called "clients". This architecture is called the client–server model, and a single overall computation is distributed across multiple processes or devices. 

Shell

A software interface that enables the user to interact with the computer, it provides UI for access to an OS's services. Shells use either a command-line interface or GUI, it is an environment in which we can run our commands, programs, and shell scripts.

Shell script

SIP

Session Initiation Protocol is a telephony signaling protocol used in VoIP communications for initiating an interactive user session that involves multimedia elements such as video, voice, chat, gaming, virtual reality, mostly used for free.

Site Reliability Engineering

Site Reliability Engineering is a discipline that incorporates aspects of software engineering and applies them to infrastructure and operations problems. The main goals are to create scalable and highly reliable software systems.

SMB

Stands for Server Message Block. It is an internet protocol for the application layer, used for shared printer, files and serial ports access. SMB is usually involved in client-server communication on  Microsoft Windows computers.

SMP

Symmetric Multiprocessing is an architecture of multiprocessor computers in which two or more identical processors of comparable performance are connected uniformly to the shared memory and perform the same functions. 

SMTP

SNMP uses one or more manager-computers to oversee the devices via an agent, a software program that feeds information to managers.

Software installations and upgrades

Software installation refers to the particular configuration of a software or hardware with a view to making it usable with the computer. Software upgrade refers to any major upgrade to the software that adds significant or completely new changes to the program.

Solaris

An Unix-based operating system that was developed for the SPARC platform, since 2010, belongs together with Oracle's Sun assets. Despite the fact that Solaris is an operating system with closed source code, most of it is open and published in the OpenSolaris project.

Solus

An independent Linux distribution that uses Budgie as the desktop environment and Eopkg for package management. Solus - an operating system for modern PCs, the main purpose of which is convenience in use. The operating system is built from scratch and does not depend on any other distributions.

SPDY

An open networking protocol which main objective is to reduce the time it takes to load web pages and their elements. This is achieved by prioritizing and multiplexing the transfer of multiple files in such a way that only one connection is required for each client.

Spring Cloud

A collection of tools that provides solutions to commonly encountered patterns while building distributed systems, simplifies development of JVM apps for the cloud.

SQS

Amazon Simple Queue Service. Provides the ability to decouple and scale microservices, distributed systems, and serverless applications.

SSH

Secure Shell is a network protocol that provides administrators with a secure way to access a remote computer (for example remote login to computer systems by users). Uses a public-key cryptography to authenticate computer.

SSIS

SQL Server Integration Services is a Microsoft SQL Server DBMS component that can be used to perform a wide range of data migration tasks. This tool can also be used to automate the servicing of SQL Server and to update multidimensional OLAP cubes.
