Servers & Systems: The Right Compute

One-stop storage shopping for your backup eggs

HPE_0193_SIMPLE_BAN_400x627_040518.gifThe past few weeks we’ve been talking about centralized backup storage with blogs talking about when to put all your backup eggs in one basket and how to protect that basket. But what if using a basket for your eggs just seems too difficult? This week we’re going to talk about how securing your eggs can be a piece of. . . cake.

Where do you keep your data and files?

Or, maybe I should put it differently. Do you know where your employees keep your data and files? Are you sure? With limited resources to devote to IT, many small businesses find it challenging to provide a secure, controlled means of storing and backing up application data and files so that employees can easily access and share them. Often, employees take matters into their own hands with “shadow IT” or “rogue” cloud file shares. While that may be convenient for employees, it may also leave data open to loss or attack.

Adopting a server with automated storage and backup provides you with a secure, central repository for data and files that protects you from downtime and data loss. Still, many small businesses delay getting a server for the exact reasons listed above—lack of IT expertise and resources leaves them wondering if they have what it takes to adopt server-based computing.

HPE understands Small Business challenges. That’s why we’re offering HPE Small Business Solutions for Storage and Backup as a one-stop shop that includes hardware and software,[1] and a choice of either the ClearOS™ or Microsoft® Windows Server® 2016 operating system, making it easy to deploy.
