UAE Technician offers 24/7 server monitoring services, specializing in monitoring Small business servers, Terminal servers’ and file and print servers. We use our monitoring tools and software to measure key metrics on your business’ critical servers. The software constantly checks your network for threats and triggers off alarms if there is a problem which is then reported directly to our engineers.
As the number of users increases, the reliability of that machine would become higher, making it more difficult for the user using that system. Let’s say when you get a problem with the system and you reboot the system while other people are already accessing or processing something from the same system, you could lose your data. Not a good thing. This is where a Server comes in. It gives you centralized access.
If you have only one server and you have a person that manages multiple desktops, then there’s a reasonable chance that your desktop support can manage the server. Server engineers become a requirement if
Hardware: Rack mounting, enhanced heating, cooling, and electric supply. None of these are required to have a server engineer, but to run several of them efficiently usually leads you to running some kind of dedicated server infrastructure.
Storage: Server storage usually runs on RAID, which takes a little knowledge to manage and maintain.
Backups, Recovery: If your server is accessed by multiple people 24×7, then you’ll need specific equipment, software, and processes to back that data up manually or automatically while minimizing or eliminating downtime for your users.
Security: Data on servers is accessed by multiple groups of people, each of whom have different access rights and privileges. Defining those groups and setting up appropriate data access is a task specific to server engineering.
Server applications: Web, Database, Email, etc. Supporting these applications requires specific processes that you won’t usually encounter in desktop management.
Again, if it’s only one server used for data storage, then it’s quite likely that your desktop management group can handle it (if they have time, dedication and inclination). In general, if you end up with multiple servers running dedicated applications, then you’ll have enough work to justify a dedicated server engineer.
