Client has only 2 workstations and uses quickbooks and another application for their business, the rest are standard apps, internet, MS office, etc. The workstations are pretty much maxed out on HD space and processing power.
Client asked for a quote for a server and of course they wanna spend as little as possible...
I would like to put Quickbooks on the server and it will also need to be a file/print server for these two clients.
I looked at HP and Dell websites at their desktop servers and would like to know what you would suggest as a recommendation.
I would also need it to be a raid server (disk mirroring).
Client is also possibly looking to have a satellite office of 4-5 clients to be able to access the server just to access files on it.
I also took a look at this website that sells refurbished servers - maybe worth it? http://www.aventissystems.com/
I would like to have a recommendation for only the 2 local clients and a recommendation for if they decide to in the future the satellite to have access.
I would also need a recommendation on what OS to use - SBS 2008, 2008R2 etc...
