Design – Requires innovation, and the ability to think outside of the box. Small and medium sized businesses usually don’t have a large technology budget like the larger businesses and corporations have. Small businesses can’t afford to throw down money for redundant data pipes, redundant firewalls, redundant backbones, clustered server environments for failover, redundant backup systems, redundant AC and humidity control systems for the server room, and so on and so on. Oh, and did I mention you are going to need to hire a team of IT pros to manage and support the network? Having a local network, completely redundant, with 99.99% uptime is idealistic, but not realistic for small and medium sized business networks. That’s why it is so important to know the services available, and how to apply them for your business needs during network design.
There are lot’s of options to take advantage of that won’t break the bank. Besides, leveraging the technologies that best fit your requirements, and a price tag that doesn’t completely destroy the budget is ultimately the end goal right?
