Ok, our company is about to expand a bit. We are moving into a new facility and will be adding more employees. The boss has asked me to look into our needs for a server and a system to back up data. I'm pretty savvy with computers but I don't have a lot of experience with server applications and I'm not exactly an IT guy. Basically, we're not looking for anything super complicated. There's going to be at most, 20 work stations. A backup system of some sort will be needed. Most of what is to be backed up will be users' documents, etc. We also plan on storing process parameter data from the automated equipment in the production area. I guess the questions I'm asking are: 1) Pre-built or build from scratch (wouldn't be a problem) 2) Recommended backup system.. local (tape or hdd), off-site, etc 3) Operating system .. It will likely be a Microsoft system so that narrows it down. Please guys, lets not turn this into a Linux vs. MS war. 4) Any other useful information Anyway, sorry for being so vague but for now it's all I got to go with. Thanks in advance for your answers..
