  • File Servers

A more organized workplace will lead to a more efficient business. Efficient businesses are able to provide their products or services in timely fashion to their customers leading to customer satisfaction, they are able to minimize on mistakes made and profits can eventually be maximized. File servers give you the ability to store files into one centralized area in your networked business environment.

Linux Now offers great Linux based servers that are custom to fit your needs, particularly if your business is one of the many businesses that do not have a logical file storage methodology. A business that runs without a logical storage process could be hazardous to its success since important business files could be stored in a number of different locations making them hard to find or making it easy to lose them. Document management will eventually become difficult and creating backup files will be almost impossible.

With a file server you will be able to centralise all your documents to one location and one structure. This allows for a logical single storage hierarchy for your files, easier collaboration of your documents amount your staff and also provides an easy backup method.

Additionally, an added advantage of a file server is the ability to access your files from a remote location, somewhere completely far away from your office. Our file servers include VPN capabilities which allows you to securely connect to the file server from anywhere with an internet connection. This allows you to work on your documents no matter where you are.
