The server has transformed how small businesses operate, and with falling costs and improving efficiency, there has never been a better time to start using a server in your business – but which one should you choose?
With a number of server varieties to choose from, it can be a daunting task understanding your options and then making the right choice. Should you have an onsite server? Will a cloud-based server offer the best service for your business? And how can virtualization make your server choice even more flexible?
It’s important to match the needs of your business to the right server type. Ask yourself these five questions:
- Are you buying a server for file sharing?
- Will your server be predominantly used for email?
- Does your workforce need to connect to the server remotely?
- Is your server going to be used for data backup?
- How much space do you have available to accommodate a server?
Answering these questions will give you a clear idea of the kind of server features your business needs. Often, a server can be used to manage multiple workloads such as file sharing and data backup. It’s a good practice though to create a list that prioritizes your needs for a server. This gives you a clear road map to follow, which will result in your business choosing the right server for its main requirements.
