My company is growing and I want to know how to evaluate the idea of outsourcing vs buying a server to support my company information. This will be used as a databse, application, and web server. The number of users for the application will not be more than 20, but the web site we currently have gets around 500 hits per month which I think is not too much. I want also your advise about security since the information that will be stored is really important.
I am thinking about many things together, but what I really need is your advise about how to evaluate both options (outsourcing vs buying) and your opinion about the configuration of this server according to these requirements.
