Client Server Network Setup

Centratec provide a Client Server Network Setup and Configuration Service for business users in Stirling, Falkirk, Cumbernauld, Alloa, Grangemouth and throughout central Scotland.

If you’re looking for a competent IT company to configure (or re-configure) your Client Server Network and maintain it for you, please contact us. We’re happy to work with all recent versions of Windows Server 2019 and 2016, and even older versions such as WS 2012, or even SBS 2011.

In general what we find is that small business users have been oversold expensive server software in the past, leaving them with highly complex, high maintenance Client/Server networks, but where only a small proportion of the server’s capabilities are being utilised.

If you need to run a Client Server Network, we strongly recommend Windows Server 2019 if you want to interface with Cloud Based software and storage AND you have a very good broadband service. If most of what you do is in-house, or if you don’t have a great broadband service, we would say stick with Windows Server 2016. We’ll be happy to advise you on what’s best suited to your business and your businesses practices.

If you are interested in a new client server network or just want your existing server setup or configured, please CONTACT US.

Is Server/Client still the Best Solution?

What with the steady rise in companies moving to Peer to Peer networks and Cloud Based Solutions, you might think that traditional Client Server Networks are a thing of the past? But in our experience, and for a variety of reasons, there are many businesses for whom this is still the best solution.
