used to provide file services to the SMB clients. An SMB client makes requests for accessing, reading and writing to file shares residing on an SMB server.

SMB server components running on Windows Server 2012 or later have a lot to offer for SMB clients.
Initially, SMB was known for just file sharing, but starting with Windows Server 2012, there have been significant changes in the SMB protocol 3.0, including SMB Direct, SMB Multichannel (multiple connections per SMB session), SMB Transparent Failover, SMB Scale-Out, SMB Directory Leasing and many more.
