Before designing Windows Small Business Server Essentials 2011 (SBS Essentials) we asked small businesses what they needed to help them run a more efficient and effective company. Over and over again, we heard that small businesses needed a way to protect their data and simplify their IT. When designing the HP ProLiant MicroServer with SBS Essentials we kept this in mind and have launched many great features to help small businesses keep their data safe and make IT simpler.
There are three ways that the HP MicroServer with SBS Essentials helps to protect business data. The first is through the use of computer backups, which are performed automatically. Many small businesses never perform backups of their information, but with SBS Essentials, backups are done daily for the computers on the network and the server itself. Second, SBS Essentials helps to protect business data using a simplified recovery system. This system allows small businesses to restore individual files, folders, entire PCs, or the entire Windows SBS with quick, easy-to-use recovery kits.This system protects the small business’s information should a disaster cause valuable data to be lost. The final way SBS Essentials helps to protect business data is by allowing the user to control access to the information. SBS Essentials allows small business owners to safeguard important data and control which users have access to folders and/or multimedia files.
SBS Essentials on the HP ProLiant MicroServer can also help small businesses better manage their information and simplify their IT. The first way SBS Essentials helps to simplify small business IT is through improved file management, allowing users to find/access files faster, and utilize their network more efficiently. This makes it easier for small businesses to organize and maintain their business file structure, saving time and expense, and reducing the risk of lost productivity. Along with improved file management, SBS Essentials also provides simplified server management, making it easier to manage common IT tasks and address technology issues before they occur by using on server monitoring reporting helping users keep up with the health status of their network.
