primary, secondary, その次は?

メインのサーバを「プライマリサーバ」、予備のほうを「セカンダリサーバ」なんて言いますね。
3番目以降はなんつーの?とふと思ったので、調べてみました。

n 英語
1 primary
2 secondary
3 tertiary
4 quaternary
5 quinary
6 senary
7 septenary
8 octonary
9 nonary
10 denary
11 ?
12 duodenary

参考:

The sequence continues with quaternary, quinary, senary, septenary, octonary, nonary, and denary, although most of these terms are rarely used. There's no word relating to the number eleven but there is one that relates to the number twelve: duodenary.

調べてはみたものの、正直使いどころがわからないw
「今ターシャリサーバまで死んでるけどクォータナリがなんとか生きてるよ」とか言うんだろうか。
