Where to store all the company data on the server?
Posted on 2006-04-18
I am wondering where the best place to store all the company data on the server is. It includes, documents, pictures, accounting files, data from other programs.
Now i see that the Company web has storage for all documents and pictures but I am wondering if it is safe to put and entire companies worth of data in there, it seems like if anything happens to the webserver then all that data is inaccessable. Also, where is this data accually stored on the c dirive. And, is it possible to have the data in a folder on c and then replicated or mirrored onto the companyweb
Should i use a folder on the c drive such as c:\companydata and then add is to the distributed file system and share it or should the data all go into the users shared data folders. Please be patient I am a computer tech but have limited experiance with servers.
In short where is the best place to store all the companies critical data so that everyone can access it and it's easy to sort and backup.
I need to have one big hirearchy of data, I would like to keep all the data under one directory.
Lots of questions...Sorry
