What exactly do you mean by monitor and access a server?

You can have someone like www.internetseer.com monitor your server and when/if it goes down it can send an e-mail to your BlackBerry letting you know that it is down.  If you are running a control panel software such as cPanel or Plesk you can access the web admin interface from the web browser on the BlackBerry.

If your browser on the BlackBerry can run Java Application you can probally SSH into a Unix server with a web based SSH interface such as MindTerm or something simalar; you can get MindTerm from http://www.appgate.com/products/80_MindTerm/.  If it's a Windows server I would suggest using the web interface for VNC which you can get from http://www.realvnc.com.

I hope this answers your questions.

Actually found an app that we will more than likely use. Thanks for the suggestions.

Looks like a real nice app.  RemotelyAnywhere also works with WAP devices.
