Directed at anyone with network and database management experience, please.

Need to resolve a question about how best to manage my companies interactive and archived information.

1. Do I house my moving company's Server/database on a local PC under a table in my office...for security, access and control...or incase of blackouts?

2. Do I place our company's data on a ISPs system(s), with 25 mysql databases and daily backups?

Which approach makes better sense?

Thanks

Jerry :

Hi my name is XXXXX XXXXX I would like to answer your question today.

Customer:

Great.

Jerry :

So I guess it depends on what you are concerned with more back up or security

Customer:

That is the delema. Unfortunately we don't have a way to properly backup our systems so we have copies outside of our office should any thing happen.

Jerry :

In the first case you have better security and access to the PC 24/7 no matter what happens

Customer:

OK. What is the advantages of housing it on a ISP system?

Jerry :

In the case of the 2 option your server will be backed up by your ISP and if there is a major change to your data base that causes a issue you will have so many back ups to pull from also the server is probably better protected because it will be in a data center that is more designed to house servers rather then just a office under a table.

Customer:

Thanks that is all I needed to know.

Jerry :

Your welcome do you have any further questions?

Jerry :

If not can you please click on accept so I can get paid for my time and effort

Jerry :

Customer:
