Frequently Asked Questions

What is a small business server?
A small business server is a computer that is dedicated to providing centralized resources and services for other devices or programs. Small business servers may include a single tower server, a collection of rack servers, or a deployment of blade servers

What type of server is best for small businesses?
The best server for a small business depends on its compute and storage requirements. A tower server is an excellent initial small business server; acquisition costs are low and can be easily customized to the business's needs. For companies that require multiple servers, rack servers offer higher performance and enable more servers to be deployed within a small footprint. Housing servers within a rack also make it easier to manage and maintain the devices and to cool the equipment. For maximum performance and density, blade servers pack more processing power into a smaller space and can be configured to serve a variety of applications. The cost of acquisition and energy for blade servers tends to be higher than other types of servers.
