    How to setup a customize simple Library or Archive server (Urgent)


    by ernest_choofy ·

    I am planning to setup a Library or Archive server which ever name be it.
    What is the most feasible method or solution to achieve it?
    Use SharePoint Server is too expensive and a Web Server will affect the bandwidth.
    The purpose is to store a central depository of archives to use for edit, view, updates,wiki in order to facilitate the Users within the office environment. Just like in a library with patrons going around searching for information and make necessary developments.
    The achrives contain drawings(archiectural designs and office documents)
    Users can easily access via link or map to the dedicated server.

    Please advice anyone

    Warmest Regards
    Ernest Choofy

      Assuming that you want to work in a windows environment here…. Use Windows Server 2003 and configure it as a network file server. Here are some of the benefits, it will give you what you are looking for and then some…hope this helps.

      Automatically copies critical data volumes by using the Volume Shadow Copy Restore service, eliminating downtime. The copies are used to restore or archive files, and users can retrieve archived versions of their documents.

      Enables Encrypting File System (EFS), which provides core file encryption technology. EFS is a public key-based system that makes it easy to manage, difficult to attack, and transparent to the user.

      Initiates Distributed File System (DFS), a stable, orderly, location-independent naming scheme for all shared files when using Windows. A single share, or a single drive mapped to such a share, can contain files and directories on any number of file servers.

      Quickly stores, manages, and shares information such as files and network-accessible applications.

      Limits and monitors the amount of disk space available to individual users.

      Securely searches for information, either locally or on the network. It also searches in files that are in different formats and languages.

      Helps users manage their disk space by logging and reporting when a user exceeds a specified disk space limit or warning level?that is, the point at which a user is nearing his or her quota limit.
