Need a Server
I own a consulting firm, we have 5 computers. 2 run Vista, 3 run windows home 7. I would like to add a server, where all can access word documents, excel folders, etc.
We will not be running and programs from it, I think 500 GB is plenty big. We are all wireless, and have a router int he office.
So, we basically need a hard drive we can all share, so versions of files, such as reports, are in one central location. Battery backup in the event of an electrical failure may be helpful.
Any suggestions? Is this something I should tackle myself? or should I rely on an IT guy? We all have individual printers. It seems so simple, yet so tough.
Can we rely solely on a cloud server, such as carbonite, or some other?
Comments and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
