Choosing Your First Server

Is your business ready for a server?

If you use two or more computers to share information or internet access, a server suited for small business will benefit you. Servers not only help streamline business applications and processes; they boost your business security and productivity, so your employees can work efficiently. Servers are easy to implement, affordable, and are designed to store, process, manage and send data 24/7.

  • You store important data and files that should be protected from unauthorized access, loss or corruption.

  • You want to securely access your files from anywhere, back up vital files on several computers or restore of files that were accidentally deleted.

  • You use accounting programs and relationship management software to communicate with vendors and customers.

  • You use a central communication system to share information with clients, staff and vendors and organize group meetings.
