    What Is A Server ?

    Servers are basically large computers built to be more robust, more powerful and expandable. They are used to control data in a working environment. They are kept on all the time and provide a central location for all files, folders and databases.

    With a server, you can control who has access to various files and folders. 

    Servers can also run databases, email systems or CRM systems which may require multiple users to access the database at the same time. Servers also allow for easy printer sharing.

    Servers tend to run on software such as Microsoft Server 2012 or Exchange 2013


    Who Needs A Server ?

    This really depends on what the server will be used for, but a rule of thumb would be to say that a business of around 5 users should be looking at using a server. If a business is only performing file sharing functions then a small, low cost server will suffice. It might be that a NAS or Network Attached Storage will be more appropriate as it is cheaper but just as efficient.

    A business that runs shared applications with shared printers and an email system will almost certainly need a server. The server will need to be more expensive, more powerful and have more redundancy built into it.



    • A server helps centralise your information.
    • A server can help you control access to data helping to keep things private.
    • A server can run software that multiple users might need to such as a CRM or Accounting package.
      A server can help track who last used a file or folder
    • A server allows you to centrally control who does what - and when.



    A server can be expensive

    A server needs special software

    A server needs to be maintained

    A server needs specialists backup software (in some cases)


    Overall, there is less of a need to have a server and small businesses with only a few employees might find it more economical to go to cloud based services but larger institutons would probably find that a server based network allows them more control and it becomes cheaper than a cloud based solution.
