The data is going to be stored locally at the client and backed up locally. Replicated back to or office and stored.
Equipment I have is still under warranty. I just need a way to add storage and easily grow it. I'm use to local storage on dell raid cards. I need something more...
I'm looking at bringing some of my clients backups internally using Storagecraft.
I have some older (4-5 year) Dell Tower Servers (T310 & 410) models as well as spare licenses of Windows Server versions.
I need a way to have some direct attached or network storage that can...
I need to do a presentation for some perspective clients. I need a projector for this. I don't want to spend a boat load since I may not use it really after this use. However nothing to say I can't throw it in the basement and use it to play movies/game in the future. Even wanted...
Most dental/medical are cheap. Selling Datto may not be feasible. However the Alto unit is free just pay for service.
So depending on who was raping them for online backup it may make sense. I know some charge $3/GB for Dental/Medical online backup.
If you need help reach out to me.
as another IT provider who supports dental offices, and my wife's office running dentrix.
use system image built into windows. the dr and staff most likely will not want to take a hard drive home with them each night, so just leave it near the server.
HIPAA rules do apply and you do...
if it doesn't have much data and limited use, the r210 series is good and you can use a cyberpower rackmount the 750va would power that thing and isn't deep.
raid 1 should be plenty for a simple program. or even use SSD since the R210 are cheap.
The drives are kingstons. It's only used for the os. This is motherboard raid.
How are Seagate constellations?
No errors ib the hp array manager. Just the drive failed the client putt a new ssd in and it's set for queue to rebuild and it doesn't go past.
I would like to just...
A new client called me with SSD in Raid on a microserver. The previous tech purchased 2 SSD in Raid1 and 2 2TB in Raid 1. They are not drives from HP. The solid state drives keep dropping out of the array so I suggested we use raid specific drives.
I was thinking Seagate Constellations...
4-Hour isn't necessary. Well in my opinion. Most offices can still survive if they were down for a day. I wouldn't spend the extra funds.
SAS is always standard for me. 4 300GB SAS in Raid 10 is plenty data for an office.
Single VM is fine. The roles take up nothing.
Look at Backup...
Listen to Nate.
For small business you aren't doing HA. For a 3 operatory dental office not worth it.
Do Hyper-V with Server 2012. DC, DNS, File, and your Dental LOB (Patterson or Dentrix I hope). Do good backups to external drives you take home on some routine. Then do some online...
So what RAID card would work with one of these that doesn't break the bank,
I plan to install ESX or Hyper-V on my T310. I just want to be able to spin up a VM if needed for Testing. I will have a few VM that I care about (need reliable, I figured raid) the rest of the test ones just need to...
I have about 30 or so hard drives that have been pulled out of brand new Dell Optiplex machines. This was due to installing aftermarket solid state drives. So I have a bunch of 500gb and 1TB drives.
I have a Dell T310 server that I will be using with ESX or Hyper-V.
I would like to...
So to it properly you will need:
- redundant internet connections - business
- redundant servers and networks
- redundant power
Do you think you can do that for $8/month for a hosted exchange account?
Now if you just want a server at the house, you need business grade ISP at a minimum...
I am surprised so many are suggesting to do your own mail server.
Sign up for any Hosted Exchange provider and forward all your mail to that one spot.
Doing your own mail server for 1 user is kinda silly.
I use strictly ZyXEL USG line with all my business clients. Generally the 50 and 100. Can't go wrong with them. Firewall is dead stable.
I have a few sites that I use the UTM features but most clients dont require this,.
My dad is building out a office with some other attorneys and they signed up for hosted phones.
I just ran about 16 drops last night for them, but need a router for the job. I am putting a gigabit switch in and don't care about POE since they have outlets where the phones are.
But I do...
I don't see how you can call Ruckus crap. One of my large sites is 6 condo building all with ruckus tied back to the main office. In summer 100-180 people always on it with no issue.
It isn't cheap but is it a leader for a reason
