GIS server and ArcGIS server terms,

I got confused regarding the two terms:

??? GIS server
??? ArcGIS Server


Is I understand them, the ArcGIS Server is the software that is installed in machine and then the user can use his ArcGIS desktop to publish (providing url: http://localhost/...) mxd, lyr, ecw, tiff, Jpg, loc, tbx, ??? files to be used then in web applications.

Then how about the GIS server? What does it represent? Software? Hardware?

Thank you
