|Why not use Linux instead ?
Linux is a superior platform
comparable to Microsoft in many ways. File Servers don't
necessarily need to be Microsoft.
If you require server capabilities
but just don't have the budget for the brand name
Microsoft Server, why not consider the LINUX
You wont be Disappointed
Linux CentOs and other Linux based
operating systems are GNU /GPL (general Public License).
This implies that the software itself is free as opposed
to Microsoft Server Licensing which is not.
The only costs incurred by the
user are hardware , engineering and maintenance costs.
Technology Help Centre Provide a pricing structure that
will cover all costs involved when you request a
proposal for a Linux System/platform.
Linux also runs older hardware and
does not require the high end processing speeds and
copious amounts of RAM that its rival Microsoft Small
Business Server needs to process.
Linux derivatives are less prone
to viruses or spyware and the most basic Linux platform
will run on as little as a Pentium 2 with 256 mb ram .
Unbelievable but very true.
Why not go Linux all the way and
have a 3Desktop/workstation?
With Linux you don't purchase any
software such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint or Outlook etc.
Open Office icomes free and is completely
compatible with Microsoft Office software files. Yes it
is free and you only need a low end PC to run everything
you ever needed.
Obviously if you require gaming
then naturally this specification needs to be reviewed
slightly but for normal office use a Pentium 4 256mb RAM
will run perfectly unlike windows vista that needs 2GB
ram and a duel core CPU and a 256 mb video card.
- Less Costly
- More Reliable
- Less likely to
be virus infected
Linux platforms on average require
less rebooting and maintenance there are very few
software updates to run and this is why many larger
government organisations are making the switch.
So why not give Linux a try call
