Using Windows Home Server in a Business Environment with SBS 2008
Have you ever thought about using Windows Home Server in a business environment with SBS 2008?
Well that is exactly what The IO Guy thought about and so he has done a really good article on just this very topic!
Here is how he starts the article:
So here’s an interesting thought pattern. With the consumerization of many elements of our technology environment, what role can a solution such as Home Server play in a corporate environment?
I had a theory that it could be quite a smart solution when combined with SBS, particularly to leverage it’s backup and storage functions.
So here’s what I set up:
- SBS 2008 – I went this way for 2 reasons: the Home Server scenario is more likely in a small business, and the all-in-one nature of SBS makes it easier to set up a complex environment.
- Home Server with 3 disks attached. 2 x 120GB and 1 x 500GB.
