A server might look like a glorified desktop PC, but these machines are designed for very different tasks. A desktop computer is for one user to operate and run desktop applications such as Word, web browsers and email. A server runs a specialized operating system designed to support many users. A server makes it easy for employees to share and collaborate. It can host a company intranet, for sharing information with your employees quickly and economically.
You can set up a Virtual Private Network (VPN), and you and your employees can access the data on the server remotely from home or anywhere you have internet access. On top of that, a server can automatically back up your desktop and laptop systems, so you’ll never loose critical data if one machine fails, or is lost or stolen.
Servers are designed to be reliable, secure and fault-tolerant, with redundant storage options.
