    Hi there,

    You need to plan, plan & plan some more... find out what they need (not always easy I know) as they may not know themselves, Consider the lifespan of servers & OS (Always buy proper brands with business level cover. Remember whatever data is on the servers needs to be backed up. (I use Disk to Disk to Tape) look into Veeam or Backup Exec Depending on if you virtualise. Work out what roles each server will do and decide on required specs then add enough headroom for the future. Contact a MS reseller (Assuming your going to be using windows) to sort out licensing. Consider deployment of OS to Clients, security, infrastructure & switching etc. its a very very long list and i have only mentioned a tiny part of it. If you are not sure on anything (i don't know your background) I would recommend getting yourself a solutions provider to work with you.

    Hope that helps a little. Appreciate its vague but you haven't given much to work on....

    Cheers

    That is quite a big and, to be frank, very open question. What our members would need first before they answer in any real capacity is ansers to some very basic but important questions. If you could provide answers to this list it would help greatly:



    • How many people is it for?
    • Are they using desktops or laptops or both (wired\wireless)?
    • Do they all work in the same location or are some remote workers?
    • What will users be doing (office tasks, video\photo editing etc.)
    • Will they require email?
    • What is your budget?
    • Do you have an existing network infrastructure such as cabling? If so what do you already have in place?
    • Would you need internet filtering and\or BYOD provision?
    • Do you require storage, and if so how much and would you also need data backup provision?
    • What operating systems would you be running (Windows, Mac, Linux etc.)?



    I think that's enough to be getting on with for now, but be prepared for more questions to come!
