Description

Experience Level: Intermediate
I need advice.

We have recently moved from my home to a small office.

We have internet access via cable and wi-fi to our own router using BT Infinity 2 and VOIP telephones.

There are currently 2 of us in the office soon to be joined by a part timer.

We currently work as follows:
1 laptop and I desktop PC
We will need to get additional PC or Laptop when part timer joins

At home we backed up to a Raid configure Western Digital Sentinel DX4000 NAS storage device (which I have not yet installed in the office) and we have a Live wire account which needs properly configuring and is not currently used.

We occasionally work from home as well as the office it would be helpful to have a central place to hold all of our files which we can each access from anywhere – so long as it is secure.

I need to be sure we make the best choice of how to proceed with our office IT structure and I would value your opinion.

We are a small business so cost is a key factor.

Question is how best to achieve this:
1. Can we make better use of the Western Digital Sentinel DX4000 perhaps as a quasi-server
2. Should we buy a dedicated server for our office – if so could we access through the internet safely?
3. We set-up an Microsoft Office 365 business account although I am very reluctant to get in the clutches of Microsoft.

What do you think?

Happy to discuss this on telephone

Alan
