SAP MaxDB X Server is the communication server for the SAP MaxDB database system. X Server waits for connection requests from clients such as database applications and database tools on remote computers.

X Server is required when a client on a remote computer establishes a connection to the database on the database computer. The JDBC interface also requires X Server for local communication.

Communication between clients on remote computers and X Server can be encrypted with SSL/TLS in SAP systems.

X Server can be used on all operating systems supported by the database system. It is a component of the SAP MaxDB software.
