A business server consists of two halves, both of which are often individually referred to as a server, which can create confusion. Half is the server operating system, which is like software. The other half is the host or platform which runs the server operating system. The host can be in the cloud or can be your own specialized computers called local servers. It can even be a hybrid of the two hosts.
The duality of a server requires careful, experienced balancing of the host and operating system. Too much of one or the other will either be a waste of your investment money or create an unstable and unreliable server. Well-thought out and considered balancing, along with other important factors, is the design Computer Pros Today puts into every server we build and install.
Whether your server is cloud-based or local, such as a tower server or a rack-mounted server, having professional server design and proper installation is crucial to your successful business network. A custom configuration matched to your unique business will help you get the most value from your server.
Small business owners know the painful and potentially costly expenses that can happen when the server crashes. Your server is the heart of your business enterprise that keeps all the shared software, data and computers connected and running seamlessly.
A well-planned network and matched server system will allow your business to grow without large changes to your IT infrastructure in the future. A well-designed and built server will run 24/7 without complaints. Every business is unique and every server must be tailored to that business. Computer Pros Today can you help you make these critical decisions in a cost-effective manner.
All servers require maintenance. Well maintained servers are less susceptible to viruses and ransomware, and are less likely to overheat. Maintained servers are less likely to crash, causing data loss and extensive damage that can waste employee productivity, stolen data and cause a potential loss of customers. Additionally, your business could be held liable and/or fined for any data stolen and revealed. Computer Pros Today can help prevent these problems from harming your business.
