System software manages the components of a computer system, such as the processor, memory, input/output devices, network equipment, and others. Unlike application software, system software does not solve practical tasks. Instead, it provides service functions to other programs and manages hardware resources.
The choice of system utilities largely depends on the operating system installed on the computer, the purpose of the computer (workstation or server), the number of users, network architecture, organizational scales, and many other features.
A properly chosen solution with software for system configuration, regulation, and integration of its components allow achieving high speed, performance, stability of user and system programs, and the IT infrastructure as a whole.
