Managing the critical IT infrastructure
Small Medium Businesses or Enterprises have an IT infrastructure setup in form a server room. This server room houses both server and network critical to the business. These servers provide services like Email, File storage, Intranet, ERP and Finance applications among others. Access to these is critical and requires maintaining high availability. There is usually a small team maintaining the IT infrastructure and the workstations. It is essential for these teams to have remote access to the IT infrastructure for maintaining uptime.
Equipment is often a hybrid of servers, PCs and routers combined with location-specific devices such as terminals and mobile computers all sharing one common trait and challenge –business depends on them always being available.
