Data security and storage is vital to the day-to-day running of any business. It is important that emails, files and documents are stored securely. A dedicated server allows your data to be stored and as it grows, to be backed-up efficiently and with security.
There are many types of servers and without the proper knowledge to assess the business requirements it is easy to over-invest or fall-short when selecting a server. There are many considerations: number of users, the types of files stored, size of documents, remote access needs, office locations, the number of emails and the future data transfer requirements of a business are all needed to assess the server requirements.
Some suppliers will sell the largest solution, ignoring the realistic needs of the business to gain a huge margin and over-sell. Some suppliers offer a solution that does not take into consideration the longer-term growth of a company, forcing businesses to upgrade too frequently.
