SME Server Requirements

Wanwise has implemented, and is actively monitoring/supporting a number of SBS2008 and SBS2011 and WIndows 2016 Essentials server installations for our clients. A Small Business Server enables SMEs to take advantage of IT features that are normally associated with larger companies. We would be happy to meet potential clients, discussing your business needs and how a small business server could help you to achieve your strategic business goals.

If your business is already using an older Small Business Server solution, is it now time to upgrade and migrate to the latest version, migrating to Office 365,  and take advantage of the improved features and benefits?

When a client selects Wanwise to technically project-manage a new Windows Server 2016 Essentials installation, we are able to perform the following setup / configuration activities on the SBS server as standard:

  • specification and procurement of the Small Business Server server itself (optional)
  • assign a dedicated active directory domain for the company network
  • patch the server software to the latest Microsoft updates and security service packs
  • client workstation access to the server (both local and from remote sites)
  • user login and group accounts
  • standardised company email & calendar (via company Office 365 subscription licences)
  • access to company email from anywhere on the Internet (company Office 365 environment)
  • logical company file directory structure, and security-restricted shared areas
  • tailored user login scripts (e.g. for individual network drive access rights)
  • shared network printing (if required)
  • shared network online fax facility (if required)
  • company intranet website
  • tailored, automatically generated system reports
  • centralised Trend Client/Server Messaging antivirus/antispam / ransomware solution (optional)
  • system and company data backup routines
  • end-user training
  • system documentation
