Physical Servers for Small Business

IT\norwich have been provisioning reliable, on premise servers for customers throughout Norfolk since 1997.

Though some businesses benefit from “cloud hosted” internet based virtual servers, there is still an important space for “on-premise” physical servers located in your building. Physical servers are (and we think will always be) quicker and cheaper than virtual servers and they can be more flexible too.

The minimum you can expect from an IT\norwich Business Server

All of the servers below are suitable for small businesses, but like most things you get what you pay for. As you invest more in a server you’ll not just get something faster or with more capacity – you’ll get more expandable servers with enhanced reliability and faster support when things go wrong. Choose a Business Server with IT\norwich and you’ll benefit from:

  • The operating system most suited to your needs.
  • The performance required to meet the needs of your business.
  • Hard disks configured in pairs so that a disk failure does not mean complete business interruption.
  • An “out of band” controller so that in the event of a server crash, problems can be diagnosed and fixed remotely, and at any time.
  • Enterprise grade, super fast SAS hard disks or (in the case of our basic business server) manufacturer certified SATA disks you can rely on.
  • A five year manufacturers warranty to protect your investment, extendable up to seven years.
