You may remember the Microsoft Small Business Server (SBS).
This server was a popular solution for small businesses. On this one server, many of Microsoft’s most popular programs were included, such as the Windows Server for files, the Exchange Server for e-mail and the Outlook connection. The premium version even included a SQL server for databases.
This allowed small companies to run their entire IT on one hardware for relatively little money.
Microsoft discontinued this product, because they want you to put your data in the Cloud using Office 365. We found out that the Cloud has many andvantages and today it is a good idea to use it. The cloud gives you greater flexibility, mobility, scalability and data security.

Everything with just a few clicks – and it’s implemented immediately. Payment is only made in the cloud after actual use and on a monthly basis.
ADVANTAGE 1 WHEN USING CLOUD INFRASTRUCTURE: SPEED
In the past, new servers had to be planned, ordered and configured. Depending on the delivery time of the new hardware, some time passed here.

Within a few hours, the new services will be set up in the background for you and you can work with them.
