Network setup recomendation
Posted on 2013-01-16
I'd like to ask for a recommendations for this scenario. My client has a small CAD design business. To this point all work has been done on laptops, limited backup with each employee using Outlook for email and contacts. File sharing has been via FTP
There are two offices. One in the UK, 6 users. One in China, 8 users. Internet connection in China is slow and sometimes intermittent. Access to company data is important all the time.
I want to network both offices, have all data available to all users from the servers and for the servers to synchronise the data files via Internet.
Email is vital.
I have considered putting SBS2011 or Windows Server in both offices with redirected user folders to ensure data backup etc. I'm considering using a third party Cloud solution for Exchange.
I welcome any other suggestions of how best to achieve a solid working solution taking into account the internet problem of China. Thanks/
