Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials is a very user-friendly operating system designed specifically for small businesses. The price is also a bargain due to the numerous functionalities such as the integration with Office 365, the easy to install remote access and a number of add-ins that extend the functionality. New enhancements in Windows SBS 2011 Essentials have changed the way many small businesses use the Windows network. Important changes have been introduced that have significantly impacted businesses and IT professionals.
Server administrators can easily manage and configure server functions via the dashboard. Setting up backups is one of the most difficult configurations. Because small businesses typically don't require Fibre Channel, iSCSI targeting or other enterprise-level storage solutions, setting up backups is easy. You simply need to create an external USB drive that serves as a backup device. Then all you have to do is select the files you want to back up and create your preferred or most effective backup schedule.
In addition to simple data backup, Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials also offers central storage. Server folders can be used to store files stored on user devices in a central location. This leads to the creation of shared folders on the Windows SBS 2011 Essentials Server. When the operating system is installed, three folders are created by default: User, corporate and client computer backups. Therefore, each user created on Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials has its own folder.
Remote Web Access
Remote Web Access is another outstanding feature in Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials. A wizard is designed to perform all operations, especially when it comes to making server resources such as shared printers, folders, and files available to users anytime, anywhere. The wizard first guides you through the configuration of the router and within a few minutes the remote access is fully configured. The next step is the establishment of the organization of external domain names: the connection to the public Internet. This is also a wonderfully efficient and simple process. If the company already owns a specific domain name, this domain name can be used. Alternatively, you can use the wizard to search for hosting providers that you use or through which you can obtain a free personalized domain name directly from Microsoft (ending with .microsoft.com).
This allows you to access your Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials network from an external device. Remote web users can simply click a link through a Microsoft SSB 2011 Essentials login portal. Remember that the link has SSL encryption. This allows users to access various resources on the network, click on internal business links, and download and upload files. In addition, admins can easily customize the organization of the remote web access page via the dashboard by simply setting up the organization's brand logo or background for users after login.
