Small Home Server

Small Home Server

As an IT consultant I work with a lot of small business owners. One thing that continues to surprise me is how many of them don t use a server. Most of them run their entire business from a handful of desktop and/or laptop computers. Why? They all say their business isn’t big enough to justify the expense of installing a small business Windows server. While this approach might save you money in the short-term, it puts the company at serious risk. PCs configured in a peer-to-peer …

Difference Between Tower and Rack Server

Difference Between Tower and Rack Server

Tower Servers are the normal boxes (in appearance) you would have seen in Visio Diagrams. Of course they are very powerful & have bundled software tools to manage them.

Rack Servers are servers mounted inside a Rack (something like we normally use to manage our letters, office files, etc.) Major Racks available out there adhere to …

Server Forms Factors

Server Forms Factors

[Instructor] When we use the term form factor when discussing any computing device or component, we re talking about its size, appearance or dimensions. The term, form factor, is typically used to differentiate one physical implementation of the same device or component from another. Now in the case of servers, we re talking about the size and dimensions of the enclosure in which the server exists. So the first type of form factor I want to talk to you about is something called …

What Makes a Good Server Computer?

What Makes a Good Server Computer?

The ethernet must be gigabit capable, AND offer redundancy. Server boards have to NIC s, usually gigabit but not always. In older servers anyway. Quote: there must be a RAID controller for the RAID config you want with a good reporting software (unless you get a separate RAID controller), Enterprise servers always have seperate RAID controllers. SMB (Small and Medium Business) servers can get by with ROMB (RAID On MOtherboard) but, most extensive firms use add-in controllers to …

Cost of Setting UP a Server

Cost of Setting UP a Server

I realize this is an older question and the OP might have found his server by now, but just so that it helps others, here is my answer: Unless you’re a corporate with multiple internet connections and a ton of UPS, generators and 24x7 power supply available, you do not want to be setting up your own server. The costs of running your own little DC is astronomical. This is why the concept of ‘co-location’ has existed for over a decade now. In a co-location setup, you get to put …
