Centralize! Deploying Your First Small Business Server
Now, more than ever, your small business can reap big
benefits from centralizing on a server-based network. Doing so soundly requires
some hardware and software decision making, though. The recently introduced
Small Business Server 2008 operating system from Microsoft can help you
centralize on a server, automate key network tasks, and more. In
this free, three-part, online PCMagCast Learning Center course, experts from
the PCMag.com Network will walk you through all the essential deployment steps.
The lessons, consisting of webcasts complemented by downloadable coursework,
are as follows:
Lesson 1: Picking the Right Server for Your Small Business
Lesson 2: Introduction to Small Business Server 2008
Lesson 3: Deploying Your Secure Server-Based Network
The course is geared towards small businesses that are growing beyond a simple peer-to-peer workgroup setup and are thinking about taking the next step to a client/server architecture. I have a lot of concrete information and planning tips in the lessons so I think you’ll benefit from them. You can find this and my other learning centers for Dell here.
