Why a Server Makes Sense for a Small Business

Most people, when presented with the word “server”, would think of companies such as Google and Microsoft. Most people believe that servers are reserved for larger businesses that deal with enormous amounts of data. The truth is that servers are highly versatile tools that can benefit both small and large scale businesses. Let us look at some of the benefits that a server could add to a small, growing business.

Network Security

Most companies today use multiple devices along with PCs.  Between laptops, phones, desktops, and tablets, how can you be certain you are keeping all your devices secure?  A server would help with this. It also would allow your business to stop relying on your modem/router provided by your ISP to keep your network secure from prying eyes and malware.

Backups for Data

Hard drives are prone to failure and when they go down your important data goes down with them. Servers are helpful here because they can add a comprehensive backup solution. In such a centralized storage area, your data is virtually incorruptible. This means you don’t need to worry about data losses in the future and you can bolster workplace productivity levels at the same time.

Remote Functions

Working from home was a popular trend pre-2020 and yet has seen its popularity explode since the beginning of Covid-19. Now more than ever, employees are continuing their work from the comfort and safety of their own homes. Servers allow for more than two users to remote into their workstations and continue their work. This has been crucial to many companies in these trying times.  

It is perfectly clear then that if you have a small business that is growing and you would like to see that growth continue, adding a business sever to your company is the best way you can do that. The added reliability, security and means for your employees to work from home are just a few of the benefits you would reap. We here at General Technics are here to answer any questions you may have
