Looking at a server for very small office. Trying to keep under 2k including tape backup.
Ran across the Microsoft Windows Home Server which I had not heard about before and looked interesting. After perusing info on it, it seem to be more of a high end NAS. Was looking at the HP StorageWorks X500 Data Vault. I think Dell might have one.
Looking for suggestions for a soho server. Not ready to put in Linux yet as I am still learning it and it is not a good time to go to a server I am still learning. Limited IT support for this so don't know we want to go with all the overhead associated with Microsoft Small Business Server.
Thank you in advance for your time and attention to this matter.
Also, what would y'all recommend for a good, inexpensive firewall?
