Small Business Server Selection
Small businesses need the right IT solutions, equipment and systems to improve productivity and worker efficiency. At NetComp we know that by taking a strategic approach to IT, our clients are able strengthen stakeholder relationships and to reduce overall business costs.
While many business owners recognise the importance of investing in IT for growth and profitability, the perceived costs and complexity associated with implementing solutions such as investing in small business server can be a deterrent. However, with the right advice and support, taking this step is neither difficult nor expensive.
Benefits of a server for small business
A server typically refers to a computer system that runs one or more business services as a ‘host’, which serves the needs of other users in a computer network.
Centralised storage: Because businesses these days generate large volumes of digital data in a wide range of formats, and from different sources, having centralised storage of that data – a server – allows it to be easily accessed, on a permission basis, by others in the network. Importantly, as a data centre, it can eliminate the need for large storage capacities of mobile devices by providing network users with access to data and applications on demand.
Data protection: A small business server, accompanied by reliable server support, can protect critical business data against loss or corruption as a result of disasters, theft or hardware problems.
Continuous availability: Operating in a global market requires round-the-clock accessibility of IT applications, services and data. A Microsoft server for small business supports the availability of services and data through high IT service uptime. This, in turn, reduces missed opportunities as your business stays online all the time.
Manageability: Modern IT systems such as a small business server offer user-friendly solutions that allow small businesses to consolidate business processes.
Because their maintenance can be easily outsourced to professionals like our team at NetComp, there is no need for a small business to employ IT server support staff for the maintenance of server systems.
For years now, we have recommended Microsoft server systems for medium-large businesses. But small businesses have not been ignored by the company, which offers Windows Small Business Server – a complete, yet affordable, solution.
