Server and Network Design
Posted on 2012-04-01
Hi All ..... Just putting together a proposal for network and server design for a small (10 - 15) graphic and digital design business.
The idea is to move from a SBS 2003 to:
Hosted Endpoint Security
The NAS will host all Files as a dedicated file storage, then the SBS Essentials box to take care of all Server Services like AD, DHCP, DNS, Remote Access. Is having the NAS separate overkill - or should we up the specs on SBS to then host files?
I like the idea of having SBS Essentials as we dont have the expense of CALs, but am worried services are starting to become non-centralised. With past SBS installs everything is in the one place and have not had to be concerned with going to different places for various services.
I would like to have some other perspectives on how best to design ......
