Most small businesses have no need for expensive servers, or expensive server software.
If you require shared file storage for your business, access to enterprise-grade email and collaboration tools, remote working and state of the art security, you needn’t look further than a Linux based server.
For most small businesses, we usually configure a small server based on SMEServer.
In our experience, a small business running SMEServer benefits from low installation costs, reduced maintenance costs and reduced downtime when compared to a Windows based server.
Why not Linux?
If your business relies on Windows based server software (for example, some specialist building management software or alarm maintenance programs) then Linux may not be for you.
How much will this cost?
If you need a small server set up for your business, this is what you can expect to pay:
Server Hardware £350
SMEServer Software £0
Installation and Configuration £120
This may vary dependant on your needs, but will provide the following:
- Shared file storage
- Shared printers/printing
- Domain logon and security
- Email services, including shared calendars
- VPN (remote access)
- FTP server
Support can also be provided for Linux based desktop computers. Our expertise is in Debian based Linux distributions like Ubuntu.
