We have to store nearly everything because we are outsourced. We have no access to the servers anymore and the mos clients are in different locations. Locally is only our team desktops.

So we store the physically informations the virtual informations accountant support and workflows.

Physically what hardware how connected and the wireways on top the connection of the power
Thats the only way to make telephone support.

Is it what you asked for?
