A server constitutes a central part of a network which provides a platform to share files/folders/information from a central location preventing the need to maintain multiple copies of a file and the subsequent difficulties in tracking. Additionally over time the data stored on a computer becomes more valuable. In the event of any hardware failure there is a risk that data will be lost. By storing the data centrally a means of backing up the data becomes available and can be used for recovery subsequent to any hardware failure.
This server and its backup would act as a central file storage system that can be accessed by all users. Whilst the exact layout and structure of the file system is to be determined in consultation with the client a centralised file system will allow individual and group level permissions to be applied to the data store, i.e. define who can access what data.
We procure, install and manage file, mail, security and many other servers for our client..
