Example Solution #1 - Small office

This example shows a typical small office environment. Through the use of central file storage and simple networking we can provide many benefits to a small office at a reasonable price with low maintenance costs. Just some of these benefits are listed below:

  • All machines networked via 100Mb Ethernet switch
  • Domain Controller running Windows 2003/SBS Server, offering centralised file storage with secure shared folders on fast and reliable hardware with native disk redundancy and tape backup
  • Group policy controlling workstation access, preventing both accidental and malicious damage
  • Shared access to printing resources
  • Routed internet access using an inexpensive broadband service
  • Internet access routed to all workstations, with individual POP3 email
  • Full nightly backups of critical files on the central server to tape
  • Remote support (remote control facility of server and all workstations by FIRST4TECH Technical Consultants)
