Absolutely. A virtual server too, but first and foremost real iron.

Less and less true, these days. Actually, I believe the percentage of
server systems running on their dedicated physical machines is already
decreasing for 10-15 years.

Maybe not quite that far back, but as Claudio says, the word "server"
elicits thoughts of a physical machine.

Roughly 10 years ago I was system architect at Ford (as a consultant).

We were put through a physical to virtual migration. It actually
failed for reasons I never understood, but they were certainly
aggressively trying to consolidate physical servers into virtual

I'm a fan of docker, but I think of it more like a full application
environment than I do as a server environment. "Minimal Server"
doesn't strike me as something focused on docker setups.

Specifically, I do a lot of local processing. Having docker
containers to address different processing needs seems ideal to me,
but admittedly I haven't actually done much of that yet.
