Well, actually, every Mac is a nearly full-functioning server. This isn't a self-contained app as it seems to be. It piggybacks on the many server technologies built into every Mac. It pretty much is like your average Linux server. They too have easily accessible server tools in the client version. The difference is the GUI for interacting with these features.

You're right - a server isn't an app, a server is a computer running specific apps. If you want to turn your desktop machine into a Linux server, then install and start the apps that provide network shares, web serving etc. This is what OS X Server does.
