The original architecture (classic) was designed for
timesharing systems and VAX clusters - processors that
share disk but not memory. For remote access there
was a server on the database side that accepted incoming
connections. Originally, there was one server for
each connection. That began to run into process limits,
so InterBase developed a shared server. People were
unhappy that queries ran serially, so the server was
changed to switch back and forth between queries.

That version of the remote server became the superserver.
