Does the thought of installing / managing a server seem overwhelming? We can help.
There are a lot of things that should be considered when selecting a server. Does my company actually need a server? What will its primary function be? How many users will it support? What software will it need to run? Will it need redundancy? Once we have identified its purpose we can move on to questions such as: What will the total cost of ownership be? Can it be hosted in the cloud? Will NAS (network attached storage) suffice? Servers also need ongoing maintenance and monitoring to ensure that they will continue to perform optimally and reliably. Servers that are neglected tend to fail without warning and at the worst possible time. It is a good idea to keep servers patched and updated regularly to protect from known vulnerabilities as well as routinely check backups to make sure your servers data is protected in the event of a failure.
