What exactly is cloud computing? Put very simply, it is the future of computing. It is a way to store all information and software online as opposed to on a computer’s hard drive or on your local network. If you like to read the basics behind it, check it out on Wikipedia. Cloud computing comes in 2 main options; 

Public Clouds

Although they are extremely efficient, Public clouds are more vulnerable to be broken. However, it is the best option when you are working on collaborative projects which require input from various people. As long as everyone has access to the internet and an email account document sharing is made easy.

Private Clouds

Members of a private network may be invited to partake in Private cloud file sharing. The upside is that they offer greater security and user-control but Private clouds also require software and infrastructure which defeats the point of saving money through not having to purchase a server.

Benefits of Servers

  • Prepares your business for growth
  • Allows all staff to access files and documents
  • Stores large applications safely and securely
  • Centralises email management
  • Acts as a virtual filing cabinet for your company
  • Protects your PC’s from cyber attacks
  • Look after your own files (not viewed by third parties)
  • Technical issues are solved quickly

Business servers come in a range of sizes; rack, tower and blade being the most popular.

Rack

Rack servers were created to be stored in cabinets to save space. Their compact size means they are are perfect for small to medium-sized businesses investing in IT solutions without having to hire dedicated IT staff.

For the cheapest option available they guarantee 24-hour performance and are extremely reliable and manageable by even the most inexperienced staff. Rack servers are available from Servers Plus starting from £361.

Tower

Alternatively, Tower servers are a good choice for smaller offices. Like the rack servers, they are trustworthy and high-performing yet do not require mounting. They have been designed for always-on operation and can be easily upgraded when your business is ready to expand. HP Tower servers start from £199.95.

Blade

High density form and flexible design means Blade servers offer space and powerful saving options which the rack servers do not. They are a popular choice with businesses that require high demand from their servers because they are easy to maintain and come with various levels of support functionality.
