  • Application server -- an application which processes specific type of requests and runs perpetually as a daemon/service. It accepts requests from Web server via some communication protocol, and returns results back to the Web server. It is always up, and does not need to be started for each request. It can run on another computer, and finally, there maybe many application servers running in parallel, and the load can be spread between them evenly (how do you think Search Engines run?).
