I have a small service company, i use my home office for entering customer info and storing customer data using simple windows folders. I have a women that work out of her home answering calls and making appointments. She also creates the folders and creates proposal through word for me. I also just purchased Smart Service scheduling which i'm told can work off of a server. We are currently using a WD mycloud network drive to keep our computers sync'd, however, it is very unreliable. I was looking at getting a entree level server but i have know idea what to get, and if it will do what i need. i was looking at a Lenovo TS150. As to drives do i get a sata or a ssd? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Choosing the right server

by SFCable In reply to Small business server

If you are a small business owner then you will have a different kind of web hosting options Like USA Dedicated Server, Shared server. Choosing the right host is not something you will want to run into, especially if you depend on your website for any portion of your existing revenue, or use it for lead generation.

You need to care for your servers, though. You will surely need server racks for that. Just open this page ( ) and you'll get the idea of what I am talking about.

Small business server recommendation.

by meltondaniel60 In reply to Server

Among the modern single-processor servers designed for the needs of small businesses, there are two main types. The first of them is focused on achieving maximum energy efficiency and noiselessness but does not have the highest performance. These servers are more suitable for solving non-resource-intensive tasks for which high performance is not important. Such tasks can be considered file storage, as well as the implementation of network services. Critical for such purposes is not the speed of the processor and the capacity of the disk subsystem. If you plan to store valuable information on such a server, you can immediately equip it with an external controller with a battery module and hot-swappable SAS disks organized in a 5th level array.

The second type of servers, equipped with the most powerful processors and high-speed RAM, is more suitable for working with databases. If the company's activity requires the simultaneous operation of several users in this mode, then it is not necessary to achieve high energy efficiency and low noise levels; rather, it will require a struggle for the reliability of the entire system as well as a set of measures aimed at achieving the maximum level of security.
