Our experts at Taribo (NIS Ltd) understand the issues that individual businesses require from their server.
Our Taribo (NIS Ltd) Technical Staff are experts with Microsoft's Server Operating systems.
These may be normal server operating systems or the Small Business Server range of operating systems. Microsoft's Small Business Server Operating system is quite simply a fantastic product for all organisations of up to 75 members of staff.
It is a recommended server product because so many free and useful software packages are included with the product when purchased.
A feature list is below of facilities available for your business when having your own server, including a list with description of commonly used add on components.
Having a Microsoft Server / Small Business Server can provide the following business benefits:
A server is usually a PC based machine in a purpose built chassis that is designed to stay switched on 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. The server has superior power supplies, cooling and motherboards that can take much higher capacities of RAM and finally can house many hard disks.
Proper Server operating systems, such as Microsoft Small Business Server and certain Server chassis can provide Hard disk resilience which is recommended when choosing a new server, so that if a hard disk fails in the server during its lifetime, then no systems will go down, and no data will be lost. The failed disk will simply require replacing and rebuilding to re-join the disk redundancy set.
A UPS, Uninterruptable Power Supply is a battery backup device and electrical voltage surge suppressor capable of keeping the server up for approximately 20 to 40 minutes in the event of a power failure, with the ability to shut down the server operating system safely in the last few minutes of battery power.
Once a new server is implemented.
It is recommended that the email collection role is transferred to the Server.
It is also recommended that any other important data, such as individual members of staffs emails and my documents business data are also transferred to the fileserver.
The Fileserver shall be equipped with a modern tape backup device.
Backup software will be installed on the server, to automate and manage all tape backups and a daily schedule shall be implemented to backup all business data.
On line backups can be arranged to backup company data to remote storage areas.
Anti-virus & Anti Spam & Anti Spyware
An anti virus, anti spyware and Anti Spam system is also recommended to be installed on the fileserver. This will provide a centrally managed antivirus system for the business, which will also work out cheaper in the long run for the business. It will attempt to down load new antivirus update hourly from the internet and if necessary push them all out to any connected PC clients. The centrally managed system will ensure that all PC client workstations are up to date, and it will no longer be necessary to install and re-install licences per workstation every year, at different expiring intervals. The Sophos Small Business Edition, also incorporates a product called Puremessage which amongst other things provides an Anti SPAM email system engine for ALL PC workstation clients.
Off site PC’s can also be protected with this system.
Firewall & Remote Access
This task can be controlled by a premium version of the Server Operating system Software or by using an advanced router.
