Might be that you have heard about it. Usually they are referred as sapservX servers. They are FTP server used to transfer files between customers and SAP. This is mainly for purposes of analyzing of customers issues. Here you as customer you can upload files with error description, traces, logs etc. Also SAP support can place some file for you as customer to fix some of your issues. X in sapservX represents the SAP FTP server accessible for you within the regions (in brackets physical location of server):

sapserv3: Europe and Africa (Walldorf)
sapserv4: America (San Francisco)
