While expanding your company, you should make sure that you and your employees can access the necessary software and files remotely. As the employer, you should have greater accessibility and control over confidential information of the company.

Starting with the two types of servers—Cloud and Physical Server. Depending on the needs of your business, you'll be able to choose the most suitable server.

Cloud Server

A cloud server is more suitable for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with limited space and IT resources. Although it has a slower speed compared to a dedicated server, many businesses will find it sufficient. On top of that, the cost is lower. With its redundancy, there is very little to no downtime at all.

Physical Server

A physical server comes with a high upfront cost without recurring fees in the long run. Compared to a cloud server, there will be hardware replacement costs that you or your company fully bears. There are also other costs for maintenance and powering the server 24/7.

Operating System

Servers run on specialized Operating System (OS), which are designed to last and support users. Some of the OS include Windows Server, Linux Ubuntu and CentOS.

Your server and OS choice would vary depending on user-friendliness, flexibility, support, and, most importantly, your budget.
