Currently we outsource our Exchange Server & Sharepoint service to an ASP and have our internal network setup as a workgroup. However, we are growing to the point where hosting our own services in house would be more cost effective and having a domain would make administration easier. I would also like having ASA and WINS sesrvices for remote VPN clients. So I am considering hosting our on Windows 2003 SBS Premium server.
Current workgroup is setup with all workstations having RAID1 and the file server RAID5 with daily image backups of all workstations using Acronis. File server data is backed up offsite nightly using MozyPro. This setup has proven very reliable and easy to maintain.
My biggest concerns of hosting our own server is that it will require high maintenance and unreliable backups. Please share your thoughts on a low maintenance and reliable/foolproof backup strategy of an SBS server in such an environment.
