We supply computer hardware and software to a large number of businesses in Perth, Dundee, Fife, Perthshire and Angus areas and we provide a first class installation service. For hardware we generally recommend Dell Servers and PCs.
A PC is meant to be used by one person, and if you connect five PCs together with a slow peer-to-peer network, every connected user will experience a painful performance hit, with hard drives all around the office spinning as employees look for files that could be residing anywhere. The bottom line: if you want your business to speed up, you've got to give it the horsepower it needs.
Servers are designed to be used by a group of people without slowing down, even as the group grows. By storing files centrally and moving commonly used applications from individual desktops to the server itself, performance isn't a problem. Wired or wireless, you'll have the speed you need. Servers have the kind of processing power your team needs to run multiple applications and access many files simultaneously. Dell servers feature Intel's Xeon family of processors for top performance. Broxden can help you choose the processor speed you need to run your business at peak efficiency.
How much would a day of down time cost you? What would you do if your sales orders, client lists, e-mail archives, or financial records simply disappeared? Far too often, regular data backup is an afterthought for small businesses, but keep in mind that your data is your business, and you should be doing your utmost to protect it. Servers can be configured to back up your data automatically by creating duplicate hard drives, recording data to tape systems, or even copying your files to a secure off-site location.
At the same time, you can tightly control interaction with the Internet. By using multiple levels of access control, data encryption, and firewall devices designed to keep intruders and viruses out, you can keep your information safe from prying eyes and hackers, even when you're enjoying the convenience of a wireless setup in your office.
Dell provides a wide range of servers, storage options, and peripherals to build real networking solutions for real small businesses. What's the perfect network for your business? Just ask. We will consult with you from start to finish, analyzing your current needs and your plans for growth, suggesting the appropriate network design, helping you get your network up and running, and supporting it into the future as your business prospers.
